Books to Read During Black History Month

Black History Month is an ideal time to participate in a month-long #ReadingBlackoutopens a new window by reading only Black authors in February. Booktuber Denise D. Cooperopens a new window, who only read Black authors during 2018 in her "Blackout Year for Booksopens a new window," coined the hashtag to encourage readers to prioritize black voices and experiences when choosing their next read. 

Are you up for the challenge? Find titles to meet your daily #ReadingBlackout goals with these materials by Black authors and/or featuring Black voices and experiences. 

#BlackLivesMatteropens a new window is one of the most visible and active movements of contemporary Black history in America, and there's plenty to read about it (during February and beyond). 

Black History and Heritage

What are you reading for #ReadingBlackout? What other titles would you recommend?
