Book review

Good morning,

To kick off a Good Friday, I just finished my latest book: Can’t Nothing Bring Me Down by Ida Keeling. I would like to say that this book was inspirational to read. Ida was born in New York while her parents were from Anegada. She life experiences began during the Great Depression where her father at first ran a store to selling groceries in a cart to make ends meet.

She became a single mother with four kids by two fathers where they first father cheated on her and the second father who she married was separated.

Her life was filled with struggles and sacrifices. She was able to participate in historical events: March of Washington, Marcus Garvey speeches, Malcolm X speeches plus death, etc.

I highly recommend this book because I gain highly respect for Ida and what she been through. After 102 years, she was able to tell her story to inspire others to live and fight each day.
