What's Your Favorite Book? Angel Luis Jirau

Posted by WVIA Admin on

"It dealt with the issue I grew up all my life about civil rights and how people sometimes have to go against the grain and that's something that inspired me. I looked at a man who didn't look like me, but he fought for civil rights. That changed my life. Not everyone who looks like me has to agree with me, but here's someone who doesn't look like me who's helping someone. That book inspired me, and I think any book that can do that is a book that should be read over and over again."
