In Honor of Black History Month

blackhistorymonth2-270x300In honor of Black History Month, meet Mrs. Karimah Grayson. She is “… a Muslim American author. Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Karimah resides in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The love of water and the beautiful blue skies keeps her loving the Sunshine State. By profession she is an educator and enjoys watching her students mature into adulthood. Karimah recently began writing in the little known genre of Muslim fiction and looks forward to sharing the Muslim American experience with the world.”

Her book The Shoulders On Which I stand is a must read and a credible Muslim Authored Book that supports Black History and herein American History. My only issue is the cover that makes me a bit shy…

So Daria Van, the protagonist of the story is a challenger. At times I identified with her on the ways she was tried by the school staff. So, I sympathized a lot with her. At first, she comes off biased but as the story unravels we see that she’s a fair character that believes in the remembrance of the past as we look ahead. We can move past the injustice, violence, etc. but we can’t forget. History must be told even if it’s hard to swallow.

Check The Shoulders On Which I stand out!
