Black History Month Reads
It’s Black History Month! What better way to celebrate than by reading a book? Every year I try to come up with a list of diverse books I feel could be read to celebrate our Black History.
This year is no different…well it’s a little different, this year I decided to do a list of non-fiction books. While I love a good novel, I wanted to focus on our history and these non-fiction books are not just a celebration of our history but a look back to see how far we’ve come as a people.
This book club celebrates Black History 365 days a year, consider February our anniversary month!
