I usually don’t use my blog as a platform to discuss current issues but, the events in the U.S. are too much for me to stay quiet. Racism is a huge issue and everyone should do their best to prevent it. Black lives matter, they always have and they always will.
One of the best way to fight racism is to educate yourself to the issues of others. As a white woman, I know I’m privileged in many ways. The only way to understand others is to listen to what they have to say and read their stories. Black authors are there, in each genre you want, you just have to read their books.
A few days ago Tammy, over at Books, Bones & Buffy wrote a post about her favorite books written by Black author including books written by Black authors that were on a TBR so I decided to do my take on her post. I highly recommend reading her post if you want to see other recommendations!
My favorite books written by Black authors
Toni Morrison’s Beloved is not seen as a speculative fiction story by most people but some parts contain fantastical elements so I decided to include this book. In any case, Beloved is a very powerful read and should be read by everyone.

If you want to do this take on this post, please do. It would be a great way to show some support to the Black community and amplify their voices.
