Black History Month

02 Feb

I’m a big fan of diversity in life as well as in books — gender, age, sexual orientation, skin color, social background, what-have-you — and I do my best to have that reflect in the books I read and review. Because while it’s fantastic to read about a white girl that I can relate to, I’m also interested in diversity of thoughts, in how people unlike myself may think and act.

I learn best by reading and viewing others who have different viewpoints.

On that note, February is celebrated as Black History Month where I’m around and I ventured forth into the big, wide Internet to find lists of books to read and review this month.

(What was that? You say I just did a post yesterday full of all the brand-new books I just bought? Well, there’s always room for more, right?)

I definitely found some great lists of books written by black authors and/or with POC protagonists, such as “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd, “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett, “The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms” by N.K. Jemisin, and “Kindred” by Octavia E. Butler. Look forward to those reviews this month!

Anyone have any other suggestions for books to help celebrate Black History Month and/or diversity in general?
