Tuesday Teaser: Dark End of the Street
With only 30 pages left in my current read, it’s time to once again consider my next book. I have five titles to choose from, including Lady Sings the Blues and Gone Girl, to name a few. You know, every now and then I like to mix in a little non-fiction to stay balanced. Today’s Tuesday Teaser comes from just such a recent purchase. Read more:
Lovett was the first of six men to rape Taylor that night. When they finished, someone helped her get dressed, tied a handkerchief over her eyes, and shoved her back into the car. Back on the highway, the men stopped and ordered Taylor out of the car. “Don’t move until we get away from here,” one of them yelled. Taylor heard the car disappear into the night. She pulled off the blindfold, got her bearings, and began the long walk home. A few days later, a telephone rang at the NAACP branch office in Montgomery, Alabama. E.D. Nixon, the local president, promised to send his best investigator to Abbeville. That investigator would launch a movement that would ultimately change the world. Her name was Rosa Parks.
If I don’t read this one next, I’ll definitely read it soon. In the meantime, to learn more about the book, click the cover image or visit the author’s website.
Happy reading, y’all!
