Racial Justice Book Group
Born Bright: A Young Girl's Journey from Nothing to Something in America by C. Nicole Mason
From Goodreads: "Born Bright, C. Nicole Mason's powerful memoir, is a story of reconciliation, constrained choices and life on the other side of the tracks. Born in the 1970s in Los Angeles, California, Mason was raised by a beautiful, but volatile16-year-old single mother. Early on, she learned to navigate between an unpredictable home life and school where she excelled.
While showing us her own path out of poverty, Mason examines the conditions that make it nearly impossible to escape and exposes the presumption harbored by many—that the poor don't help themselves enough."
