The Black Cell
It's 2024 and police brutality against Black people is at an all-time high in Baltimore and across the country. Corey Masters, a young Black man, is deeply troubled by experiences of racism during his childhood. After a false arrest and beating by police, Corey's anger is at boiling point. It is then that his roommate introduces him to the Baltimore Cell, one of many secret groups around the country recruiting and training Black people for armed resistance.
The Black Cell is an engaging and powerful read. I could not put it down, I was so enthralled. And few books leave me wanting more like Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God. This book has stuck with me in the same way that Hurston's did.
