I compiled a list of 2o+ African American literature novels for newbies to the genre or avid bookworms like me. When I first started my journey, I really didn't know what books to start with or any authors for that matter. This is not a complete list but a starting point from which to expand your own horizons. I didn't see many if any youtube videos for guidance in this area so why not make one? With so many black sisters/brothers not knowing where they come from, these books are a good way to dive into the history and knowledge of "us" in a contemporary way. Support African American authors! Any questions, comments, add ons to my list... feel free to comment below!
