100 Books by Black Women Everyone Must Read

I've read maybe 15 on this list. I thought it would be worth posting here for reference.





Far too often Black women are excluded from the classic literary canon. But Black women have consistently published evocative, thoughtful works. Our stories soar. They provoke. They inspire. The work of Black women across history is expansive. Though we've compiled 100 selections, this is still only the tip of the literary iceberg. We encourage you to leave a comment and share more brilliant works by Black women.
