5. African American Athletes Who Made History by Louis Moore
Did you read any specific books for Black History Month? If so, share what you read in the comment section below.
That is quite an impressive list. I do not read specific books for Black History Month or for any other purpose. I read what appeals to me and I find that that encompasses a diversity of writers of various races, nationalities, sexes, etc., including quite a few Black writers from this as well as other countries.ReplyDelete
You read many diverse reads! Like you, I read a wide variety of authors of various races, nationalities, sexes, etc., on various topics (both fiction and nonfiction) that appeal to me as well.Delete
Generally, I try not to select too many book titles or authors in advance to read during a particular time frame/time period as I find that I end up changing my mind on a whim on what I want to read in any given moment.
This month with it being Black History Month, I decided to celebrate it by reading as many nonfiction books (although one of the books was only semi-autobiographical) as possible for Black History Month.
During the month of March, I was planning to read nonfiction books written by and about topics pertaining to women's issues and history, but I think I'll simply stick to reading books written by women instead.
Not this year. I meant to read at least one Toni Morrison novel but caught up in other books. I do generally read writers of color year round though. Your list is admirable.ReplyDelete
I would like to reread The Bluest Eyes by Toni Morrison! Plus, read her other novels too.Delete
I still need to get started on the March books.
Thank you! Enjoy the March trilogy. All three books are awesome, but book 3 is definitely my favorite.Delete
