The following images are a collection of books from our bookshelf that can serve to offer introspection for diverse histories from various regions of the world. I truly appreciated reading these gaining insights. Sometimes it is difficult to accept the historical treatment of individuals, belonging to certain caste, class, and radicalized groups. Which is as I have been previously writing about; the need to continue to teach historical truths, but teaching should not be from the framework of preaching hate, and that is a message that students / individuals need to understand. The goal should be to teach, learn, honor histories of the past so that they are not repeated. The micro-cosmic being can open, expand hearts and minds to individuals of difference who simply strive as each other for the human desire to survive.

Countries and population segments represented in the selection are as follows:
- Jamaica and the Caribbean
- Indigenous Populations
I am sure that there are many other good reads that can be added to this collection, but in a small way this is my offering. The learning from stories, novels, and personal narratives is very often underestimated. Whilst these are books from a the prospects of diverse, I am also very familiar with the English classics, and the English Literary Canon. Knowing varied perspectives should strive to build our human understandings, to love and care: Majority and minority.

Notes: Whilst I have provided book titles and have shared images of actual books, it must be noted that these titles may also be found in PDF, electronic and audio versions. Access to technological sources are also question equity and equitable access for all students that teachers, educators or parents are always mindful of.

Dedication: I don’t think that we can ever become who we are alone, whilst I myself have taken the initiative to share these books, I would like to thank the many professors, teachers who passed on their knowledge, teaching and research for the purposes of my own learning. Thank You! My thoughts to share with love & kindness! 🙂
