Books to Help You Celebrate Black History Year-Round

 

Black History Month is always a great time to remember the historic lives and work of generations of Black and African individuals who have advocated for racial justice and equality throughout America’s history. However, if you only focus on reading books by and for people of color for 28 days (29 if you’re lucky) during the month of February, you’ll miss out on so many opportunities to engage in Black writing and communities. We want to encourage readers to read Black year-round, which is why we’ve put together a list of books that have recently come out or are coming out over the next few months, so you can make reading diverse books a key part of your regular reading rhythm.
