I absolutely love reading Black history books. I feel like an Educated Negro even though I have not read half the books that have been written. Anyway, allow me to share some of the more popular Black history books. I have only read half of these books, but I can’t wait to get to the rest. If you just have to read one book on this list, read The Mis-Education of the Negro. I promise you, this will be the best education from a book you can get. I love Carter G.!
Enjoy the list.
