currently reading... "The Help"

Seriously if you have not heard of the book:
You need to run out & get it & read it ASAP!!

It is an incredible story from the perspective of the black women who were hired as the "help" in the south in the 1960's. 
My big sister in my sorority introduced this to me and I am so happy she did.

Not only does this fit in perfectly with my graduate assistant with the Center for Multicultural Affairs but it is an eye opening, incredible story.

I hope to share this with the new students and do a program with it in the fall. 

This book is also a movie just released last Wednesday. 
Watch the trailer above. 

Can't wait to see it, but GOTTA finish the book first ;)
