15 Black History Reads

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

February is the start of Black History Month and since we're all readers here, what better way to celebrate than by reading books that are centered and revolve around strong African American people/characters. This list is compiled of fiction and non-fiction books. I challenge you to read at least 5 books from this list and let me know what you think.
