Last semester, I wrote a conflict report on Somalia for my Politics of War and Peace class, which is part of the Peace and Justice Program at The University of San Francisco. My work, along with that of several of my peers, is now available on the program’s website at Peace & Justice Studies. If you’re interested, you can find it along the right hand column under my last name.

I picked up this book for 60 cents at a used bookstore in upstate New York last week. The street the bookstore is on also has a really old church built just a few years after Douglass’ narrative was published. It was pretty incredible to read the autobiography of an American slave who escaped and found his freedom in this same part of the country. I highly recommend it.
