28 Black Authors to Read During Black History Month

Posted by LaShawn Wiltz on

Black voices should be celebrated every month, all year round without being limited to 28 days.

One of the best ways to do this is through literature. It’s where we tell our stories, our history, our struggles and share our joy.

I wanted to include a full range of authors that write a huge range of black stories from despair, to showcasing the downtrodden to uplifting and hopeful to straight entertainment.

Because they are not just BLACK stories, they are the stories of PEOPLE.

These writers write the stories of the history of America, the hopes of America and the dark places of America.

And each and every one of these authors is a MUST READ.

Hopefully, you can find an author who writes something that you can enjoy
