  1. What you mentioned about some Brits not accepting their share of the blame is spot on. Obviously this does not apply to all. A woman I followed for ages kept posting headlines about racial inequality in the US after George Floyd was killed & started getting into conversations with her about her OWN country. Eventually our relationship deteriorated which was sad.

    I am very interested in this series, love genealogy & history as well. This book sounds brutal yet fascinating.

  2. Interesting, Joy. Read Ch 4 of Resmaa Menakem’s My Grandmother’s Hands. Other chapters, as well. He addresses the embodied trauma brought to this country by Europeans, especially England and passed on creating slavery. Passed on to all.

  3. Thanks for highlighting this Joy – I will listen to it. I’ve had Sugar in the Blood on my TBR list since you first mentioned it, but must try and move it up. I enjoy (perhaps not the right word here!) reading about the byways of history that have been forgotten. You can learn a lot from them.
