Review: Brown Girl Dreaming
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I don’t like
Forms of poetry
This (I forgot the term for it)
Civil Injustice and Revolutions
“I am born in Ohio but the stories of South Carolina already run like rivers through my veins.”
“At the fabric store, we are not Coloured or Negro. We are not thieves or shameful or something to be hidden away. At the fabric store, we’re just people.”
It didn’t amaze me or anything, but I like to constantly be aware of history’s prejudice.
