An African Princess Who Stood Unafraid Among Nazis
Her autobiography is a one-of-a-kind perspective of an educated, empowered, world-traveling daughter of a royal family, which no one wanted to publish until now.
By Jenee Desmond-Harris
Between 1939 and 1946, Fatima Massaquoi penned one of the earliest known autobiographies by an African woman. But few outside of Liberian circles were aware of it until this week, when Palgrave McMillian published The Autobiography of an African Princess, edited by two historians and the author’s daughter.
The book follows Massaquoi, born the daughter of the King of Gallinas of Southern Sierra Leone in 1904, to Liberia, Nazi Germany and the segregated American South, where she wrote her memoirs while enrolled at Tennessee’s Fisk University.
She died in 1978, and her story could have died with her. [Continue reading complete article at The Root.]

Little Things about Chris Evans
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.
“You’d rather make up fantasy version of somebody in your head than be with a real person.”
Lara Jean writes letters to boys when she had feelings for them, and she hid it in a box. However, one day those letters get sent out to all the boys she’s had a crush on, including her sister’s ex-boyfriend, and Lara Jean now has to deal with the consequences.
I was pleasantly surprised by To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. It was a cute little fluffy read which I am very happy I read. It is one of those books that will put you in a good mood.
Lara Jean is a very entertaining character, naive at times, but I found her likeable. At first, I didn’t like Peter. He seemed like a jerk most of the times, but underneath it all, he is a pretty decent guy and I did grow to care for him. I liked Josh, but I didn’t see them as a couple. I liked their friendship, but that was all I saw. I loved the relationship between the sisters. It was very entertaining and a pleasure to read.
Overall, a nice enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone looking for a light-hearted read.
