Anthony (l) and Emily (r) at St. Lydia's on October 20, 2014.

Anthony Sandusky, friend of St. Lydia’s and a pastor at Concord Baptist Church in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn stopped by last week to preach on Isaiah 58:1-12 and the prison industrial complex in America.

The New Jim Crow, Michelle Alexander
Black Pain, Terrie Williams
The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. DuBois
The Miseducation of the Negro, Carter G. Woodson
The Condemnation of Blackness, Khalil Gibran Muhammad
White Like Me, Tim Wise
Dear White America, Tim Wise
