It’s Black History month and I wanted to take some time this month to also focus on uplifting their voices and the stories they tell. While I know I still have much to learn and understand about Black culture, I appreciate getting to know more through their writings depicting experiences.
It’s so awful that racism is still such a thing embedded in society. I hope we can teach our next generation to learn and appreciate one another’s differences and cultures than use it as ways to tear down each other. I think it starts with learning about what makes us unique, and books are one way of educating.
So here is a list of authors I read or hope to read soon with their most recent releases. This is by no means a comprehensive list and I am always happy to be introduced to more Black authors. So please let me know in the comments below!
Roseanne A. Brown
Tiffany D. Jackson
Which of these authors have you read? A lot of these are on my TBR but I hope 2022 is the year to get through a lot of these. I want to continue to educate myself and amplify Black voices in literature.
