The Prophets by Robert Jones Jr.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of my favorite parts of a heartbreaking but thoroughly beautiful book.
“They thought we was something dirty, but it won’t nothing like that at all. It was easy, really. He the only one who understand me without me saying a word. Can tell what I thinking just by where I looking—or not looking. So when he took my hand . . . the first time anybody or anything ever touch me so, everything in my head wanna say naw, but nothing in my body let me.”
