Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Americas), by Aminata
As Malcom X quotes "the mother is the first teacher of the child. The message she gives that child, that child gives to the world" This book should be read by anyone who wants to know more about the backgrounds of Malcom X, James Baldwin and Martin Luther King, and how they became the great leaders we know today, thanks to the values their mothers passed down to them.
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER‘A fascinating exploration into the lives of three women ignored by history … Eye-opening, engrossing’Brit Bennett, bestselling author of The Vanishing Half In her groundbreaking debut, Anna Malaika Tubbs tells the incredible storIES of three women who raised three world-changing men.Much has been written about Berdis Baldwin's son James, about Alberta King's son Martin Luther and Louise Little's son Malcolm. But virtually nothing has been said about the extraordinary women who raised them, each fighting their own battles, born into the beginning of the twentieth century and a deadly landscape of racial prejudice, Jim Crow, exploitation, unpoliced violence and open police vitriol.It was a society that would deny their sons’ humanity from the beginning as it had denied theirs, but Berdis, Alberta and Louise were extraordinary women who instilled resilience, resistance and greatness in their sons. They would become mothers not just to three world-famous men but to the civil rights movement itself.These women represent a piece of history left untold and a celebration of Black motherhood long overdue.
