Over the next few days, I'll share my annual list of favorite books, music, and movies. Art always sustains and nourishes the soul. But for me, music and storytelling felt especially urgent during this pandemic year. I'll start by sharing some of my favorite books of 2021:

Since these are works I have actually listened to, watched, or read, I’m sure I’ve missed some worthy stuff. So if you have your own recommendations to share, I’ll add them to the stack of books and movies I hope to catch up on over the holidays!

@BarackObama Racism Without Racists was a fantastic read this year for me and I cannot recommend this book enough. It examines the concept of colorblind racism and provides a damning insight of racial inequality for those who have never had to experience it themselves. An absolute must-read.

@BarackObama A bit self indulgent because I have a story in here - of which you are the subject! But wonderful writing & artwork throughout. And I mailed you a copy. :)

@BarackObama @BarackObama. Here are 2 fun reads by @MakeinSabrina (Sabrina Eiya Makein): "Artificially Sweet Delinquent" and "The Underestimated Arts of AfriaAsia." Both can be ordered paperback or downloaded e-book version on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Authorhouse & more outlets. Thank you. 💖

Next up are my favorite movies of the year. Each of these films tells a powerful story, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
