2021 Reading List

This year, I studied and read books about policing and criminal justice, early American history, Latino history, Native American history in the South, reckoning with our history, Juneteenth, the filibuster, democracy, the darkness of the Trump years and a hopeful read of history that could restore us. I also wrestled with conservative philosophy. On music, I dug into my two favorite jazz artists – Charles Mingus and Thelonious Monk, my queen Joni Mitchell, the Beatles Get Back sessions, and a deep dive as usual into Bob Dylan’s immense works and performance.
