February Book Club Choice - Growing Up X

The book club pick for this month is Growing Up X. February is Black History Month so its the perfect book choice. I still remember waiting for the Malcolm X movie to come to town. It was taking forever so I went to the library and got the book. When the movie finally did come to town a journalist wrote that the black people were happy because they had been waiting for it. Hello what about the muslims? What about other people in general? All books are for all people. We are all human. We all have stories to tell and we all have something to learn from each other. Insha Allah you will pick up this book or her dad's book and join our book club this month. Other great reads if you are interested are Uncle Tom's Cabin and Roots. Tell your kids too.


  1. As-salaamu'alaykum my dearest sister,
    I totally agree with you! Books are for everyone! But hey, the majority or the population seems to be ignorant or a lot of things.

    I've had Roots on my reading list for agesss! But it's NEVER 'in' at the library.. I may have to buy a copy or borrow.

    Malcolm X book was excellent!

    Love Farhana

  2. Wa Alaikum Salaam

    Insha Allah you will get it. I bought the book for my mom eons ago and watched the series on tv...yes I'm old. Uncle Tom's Cabin I read as a teen and named my first daughter after one of the characters. Yes the Malcolm X book was even better than the movie..glad I read it first!

  3. Anyone get a copy yet? I'm still waiting for mine. If the library is too slow then I might have to buy one.
