Essential Books by Black Authors

START

It should go without saying that posting politics on social media means nothing if you can’t do the work behind the screen to educate yourself and inform others. Now more than ever, it is important to understand the systemic racism and oppression that is engrained in American history. Throughout the years, a number of Black literary legends have written seminal works on this subject, which we continue to learn from today. Pick up one of these titles and instead of purchasing from a major online retailer, go one step further and support the Black community by buying from a Black-owned bookstore. We’ve made it easy–every shoppable link in this gallery goes to the check-out page of an independent, Black-owned bookshop. While these titles certainly don’t comprise every book on the subject, they are a great place to start. From memoirs to fiction, classics to contemporary works, CR rounds up 25 books that explore the trials and tribulations of the Black experience.
