14 Books to Read in Honor of Black History Month

We're one week into Black History Month 2019. And to celebrate, we turned to some of the most brilliants writers and thinkers of color we know to recommend some of their favorite books.

From collections of poems, to poignant YA page-turners, to bonafide classics, the books in this list are a testament to the varied, creative expressions of the black experience. The real question? Which one to pick up first. But don't stress too much about where to start. Because while this month will be over in a few short weeks, these books will still be here to inspire, thrill, educate, and move readers no matter the season.
