Often times with the media, and even our own communities, focusing on all of the negativity, ignorance, and atrocities surrounding the Black community we can easily forget all of the accomplishments we have achieved as a people. Literature is and should be included in this list. Reading is something that we need to encourage each other and our children how to do, especially material that is written by people of color. It empowers, expands, and stimulates our minds.
Personally, I have only read 12 books on this list. Once I finish the few I already started (How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, How Capitalism Underdeveloped Black America, and The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality) I will start on this list. I’m geeked! Which ones are you planning on reading first?
