Limerick is a lively City along the west coast of Ireland. There is a lot to do here from morning until the wee hours of the next morning! You can visit King John's Castle, do some shopping, eat great food and drink a lot of booze. When I was here it seemed like there was a street party outside my hotel every night. It can get a little loud so if you like a quiet place to sleep, I suggest that you find a hotel not in the center of Limerick! It is a very nice city though.

Blue Bicycle Books welcomes Michael Harriot Mon., Sept. 25, 6:30 pm as he discusses Black AF History: The Un-Whitewashed Story of America (Morrow., 432 pp., $32.50). About the book: In Black AF History, Harriot removes the white sugar coating from the American story, placing Black people squarely at the center. Harriot speaks hilarious truth to oppressive power, subverting conventional historical narratives with little-known stories about the experiences of Black Americans, from the African Americans who arrived before 1619 to the un-conquerable bandit who inspired America’s first police force. With chapters on “The Church Fight That Started Slavery,” “Construction,” and “The Race War III: The Conspiracy Theory That Was True,” Black AF History tells the stories of influential Black Americans with the comedic energy of Richard Pryor and the critical eye of Howard Zinn, revealing the rebellions and revolts standard American “history” doesn’t want you to know about. About the author: Michael Harriot is a columnist at theGrio.com where he covers the intersection of race, politics, and culture. His work has appeared in the Washington Post, The Atlantic, NBC, BET, and on his mother’s refrigerator. He is a political commentator on MSNBC and CNN and has been honored by the National Association of Black Journalists for commentary, digital commentary, and TV news writing. His college course “Race: An Economic Construct” was adapted by university economics departments across the country as a model for teaching the combination of history, economics, politics, and class structures.
