This Black History Month, I wanted to curate a list of incredible books written by Black authors. Last year I glanced at my checked out books and realized I hadn't really read anything from the Black perspective... so I made a conscious effort to change that in 2022. The cultural contributions of Black authors should not be constantly overlooked, so why not start by diving into some of these books and seeing where they take you this year?
