A Black History Month Contest (or Two)--Want Some Free Books?
We have some great prizes to give away courtesy of our friends at the Hachette Book Group.
How will we decide who get's our swag?
As a way to make this difficult choice, we will be holding a contest called "the James Brown Church" where you can confess the secrets and lies that you hold closest to your heart in order to maintain your Black authenticity.
And as an incentive for your sharing those deepest burdens and lies necessitated by the politics of Black authenticity, the best 2 confessionals will receive the following 8 books--
The American Journey of Barack Obama By The Editors of Life Magazine
Fledgling By Octavia Butler
Stand the Storm By Breena Clarke
Red River By Lalita Tademy
Keep the Faith: A Memoir By Faith Evans
Say You're One of Them By Uwem Akpan
The Shack By William Young
The Bishop's Daughter By Tiffany Warren
