Teaser Tuesday, May 18

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week's teaser:

"A self-educated black man who could educate, lift up, and enlighten other black men was a danger to the status quo.  A black man who had the vocational skills to build a house, the emotional stability to build a home, the social passion to build a village, the historical foundation to build a nation, and the mental abilities to lead that nation, was Public Enemy Number One for many."

p. 194, Belly of the Beast by Caleb Alexander
