I will not fear
I don’t often enjoy books that tell the life story, especially those of the author, I find they often are made to seem larger than life. That however was not the case with Melba Beals’ book “I will not fear”, she gave such an in-depth look of the dark and dirty world of racism and fear in the 1950’s. There were parts that were so hard to read, I can’t imagine how much more difficult it was for her to live through them. But the strength she showed, the grasp she had on her faith in the midst of all these times of struggle and pain is so inspiring. I was deeply moved by her story, it is such an important one, especially in this day and age where the fight against racism is still so strong.
This is an important book, I absolutely encourage anyone and everyone to read it,
