Recent discussion here. Made me think about books I have read by black authors. Turns out I’ve read quite a lot of them. Here are some of the ones that stuck with me for one reason or another:
Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston
Possessing the Secret of Joy -Alice Walker
The Color Purple – Alice Walker
The Bluest Eye – Toni Morrison
Beloved –Toni Morrison
I know why the caged bird sings – Maya Angelou
Things Fall Apart – Chinua Achebe
There’s more, of that I am sure. But those are the ones that leapt to mind when I thought about it.
I hope you check one out!
