I'm Reading at Get Lit TONIGHT




I'm reading at Get Lit tonight in Oakland at the Jingletown Jazz Room, right across from Fruitvale BART Station. I will be reading with a heavy heart after hearing another unarmed, Black man has been killed by police. This man was sitting in his car reading a book. Tonight I will be reading in a literary space, with people who love words.  And I'll hold in my heart a dead man who did something that I do everyday, for enlightenment or comfort--read.  He was killed and all he had was a book. This must stop. Black people don't deserve to live in fear like this.
