Recommendations for Books by Black Authors

Recommendations of Books by Black Authors

Hello everyone, as you can tell from the title of the post I’m not doing a review today. Instead, I wanted to share some books/authors you may want to read in order to learn more about Black experiences and the Black Lives Matter movement. I’m a white British girl, and I am working hard to be more aware of my own privilege and work AGAINST racism. For me, as for many other people, this means we need to be more educated. However, it is not the responsibility of Black people to educate us, which is why I wanted to offer my own suggestions — some of these books I’ve already read, some of them books on my TBR — to hopefully provide people with a starting point. I’ve seen a fair few people doing this, so hopefully there’s already a lot of suggestions out there for people to be getting on with, but I wanted to use my platform to promote this cause as well. Please do feel free to leave any additional suggestions in the comments section if you would like to!
