First Obama, Now It's...Interracial Reading

Carleen Brice announces that December is National Buy a Book by a Black Author and Give it to Somebody Not Black Month. And she started a blog to go with it: White Readers Meet Black Authors. (LOVE the message in the url: welcomewhitefolks.)
[It's] the official invitation for EVERYBODY to check out the African American section of the bookstore. Every Tuesday I'll review/introduce a black author or comment on an issue about race and publishing. First up is starting a movement in which we all give a book by a black author to somebody who's not black for the holiday season.
This gives new meaning to "black and white and read all over."
