Stories Celebrating Black Voices

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

Listening to a variety of voices and experiences is incredibly important. If you only read books featuring your own gender, age, race, or creed, there are innumerable things you can miss out on.

So, I think it’s incredibly important to read stories with black characters. These are just some I’ve read which focus on black characters. Have you read any of these? Or, do you have any to recommend?

  1. From your list, the only one I’ve read is The Hate U Give.

    Some books you may want to check out are: The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton (it’s a music-based contemporary/historical fiction), The Girl With the Louding Voice by Abi Dare (contemporary set in Nigeria), Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson (historical fiction set right before the US Civil War), and Sisters in Arms by Kaia Alderson (historical fiction set during WWII).
