Travel Tuesday’s #IAmBecoming

What page are you on? I am listening to it on Audible, have about an hour to go and it has been oh so good. I love to read and it is even better when you feel like you are part of the story. With every word I feel like I know Southside, her pain of failing the bar exam, and her first meeting with Barack.

I spent many a summer in Chicago with family, so it was interesting to hear her story of growing up there. I have my own fond memories of the cold winters and the very hot summers spent with my Aunts, Uncle & cousins in Oak Park. Adding her political and socioeconomic context to the story such as explaining “white flight” which my parents often tell me about experiencing right here in Brooklyn was almost listening to a family member tell there story. So much seems so familiar listening to her Becoming as I go through my own journey of Becoming!

Get into it! It will take you on a journey.

Cheers to evolving,
