There are 2 comments on Ten Books to Read during Black History Month

  1. Thank you for the list! One of my favorites is Americanah by Adichie. She’s an amazing storyteller who gives an insight into American racism from an African point of view and creates characters and relationships that stick with you forever.

  2. I really enjoyed Such a Fun Age. Skewers White political correctness with a poignant, compelling story, yet is enough over the top that I didn’t identify with either protagonist. Still, most readers will likely recognize elements of themselves somewhere in the mix.
