Day 18: Favorite book written by an African American: Native Son written by Richard Wright in 1940. This is one of my favorite books to read. I was required to read this book in one of my high school English classes (I think!) I would recommend this book to anyone.

Day 12: Influential Black Actor: Danny Glover. Besides being a great actor, Danny Glower is widely known for his activism. While he was attending San Francisco State, he helped organize a 5-month student walkout (the longest in history) to help establish a Department of Black Studies, it was also the first School of Ethnic Studies in the US
