Black History Month is the month we celebrate the achievements of Black and African American people from the past, present, and future. I want to celebrate Black Authors in support of #BlogBlHistory. If you’ve been following my blogging journey thus far, you know that I am in support and encourage minority children to have books that represent themselves and showcase their culture.
In a collaboration with Kathryn T. Hall, we are working together to Blog Black History, #BlogBlHistory . Check this list of both established and up and coming Black Authors. If something catches your eye please add it to your “books to read” list and share it with a friend. 10 books by Black Authors.

LaToya was a colleague of mine. She is both an educator an an author ( a woman after my own heart).
3. Kace Learns to Fly by Laymon Hicks Jr.

6. Dirty Love by Kenya Wright
7. Plight of the Savage by Reggie Cuyler Jr.
This is Black Author is a college classmate of mine and wrote this novel (his first) while we attended University. It was so interesting to see the process from beginning to end as he launched his first novel.
8. The Proposal by Jasmine Guilory
9. I Almost Forgot About You by Terry McMillan
Some of these books I personally own and have read. Others are either on my wish list or to be read lists. I love a good book (I actually even enjoy okay books), but I especially appreciate excellent books by Black Authors.
