Black Author Book Lists


Learning about racism and its insidious legacy in America is essential and one way to do that is by commiting to consistently read more books by black authors and to read every kind of black story. The literary influence of black writers in this country extends far beyond writings about slavery and racism. Read about happy black people, black people falling in love and saving the galaxy and talking to ghosts and solving mysteries. We are committed to bringing more books by black authors across genres into our store going forward. Join us in diversifying your shelves and reading more books of all kinds by black authors.

We've started compiling lists of books by Black authors for all ages. Check back as we continue to update.
