Mailbox Monday #68

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page (now at its own website).  Mailbox Monday is currently on blog tour and for the month of March it is being held at I'm Booking It.

This will be just a short mailbox for me.

I received another upcoming episode of American Experience to preview - Stonewall Uprising.  Here is the blurb from the American Experience website:
When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City on June 28, 1969, the street erupted into violent protests that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.
I am very unfamiliar with this event (to tell the truth, when I had heard the title I thought it might have something to do with Stonewall Jackson? Very clueless on this end!) so I look forward to seeing this episode.
Did you receive anything in your mailbox this week?

  1. Stonewall Kitchens is named after the Stonewall riots! I'm only familiar with the Stonewall riots from my 'super gay' phase when I first came out in college -- to be honest, I know very little about it! I'm so jealous you get these episodes early -- it's so fun!

  2. I was young when this happened and honestly didn't know anything about it. I hope you enjoy the episode!

  3. I think I would really like this one.
    Altho, American Experiences make all topics interesting and informative. I love that show. They could probably do an entire hour about a card board box and it would be riveting. LOL!

    I received 3 books.

  4. It's cool that you get to preview for American Experience. It seems like you really enjoy it and I for one appreciate you sharing them with us.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
