So yes, I know that someone as white as I am might not be your first go-to for recommendations for Black History month reads. Mine is by no means an exhaustive list, simply books that I’ve found educational, inspiring and/or convicting.
Check out these books at your locally-owned bookstore. If you are near one of these Black-owned bookstores, be sure and patronize them as you build you expand your reading.
Great Books to Read Aloud
