Here are two fiction and two nonfiction books that I highly recommend. These are all worth your time!
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
This book makes the case for fiction's ability to speak on the deeper truths of history. It has stuck with me for years since I first read it.
Reading While Black by Esau McCaulley
African American Biblical Interpretation as an Exercise in Hope
Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
Mother to Son by Jasmine L. Holmes
Letters to a Black Boy on Identity and Hope
Honorable mentions: two from my to-read list
The Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby
The Truth About The American Church's Complicity In Racism
The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes
