I’m currently working on 1984, by George Orwell. So far, I am convinced that I am the female Winston. Stay tuned for my thoughts as I delve deeper.
In the meantime, my reading list just got longer…See why, below.
In honor of Black History Month, Newsweek asked Sarah O’Neal Rush, a professor of psychology and social sciences at Argosy University—and the great-granddaughther of Booker T. Washington—for a reading list.
“These books are meant to inspire hope, uplift the soul and enlighten the mind. As the great-granddaughter of Booker T. Washington, it is no wonder I selected books that tell stories of great success in spite of extreme circumstances. I am encouraged when I read inspirational books, and I hope others will be as well.”
