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.

  1. I’ve seen “I almost forgot you” on a few list so now I have to check it out! Shared on facebook because I love this!

  2. This is a solid list. definitely going to gift some of these to my cousins’ kids. This month, I’m reading Alyssa Cole who does excellent historical romance with black heroines and comtempory romance so I’m supporting her this month.

  3. 8 love the children’s books you included in the beginning. I was thinking about blogging about some of the black authors I found on Amazon. I am going to find these titles and buy them for my kids. I love it! Thanks for sharing!
