28 Authors to check out this month:
"Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. History." - History.com
Here is a list of 28 Black authors to help you honor the achievements of Black authors, and the impact they have on Young Adult literature every day this month. It is my hope and intention that you use this information to guide your reading all year long, and not allow the celebration of Black History Month to remain confined to the month of February.
Author's biographies are quoted directly from their websites (or articles about them) and linked accordingly. All images were borrowed from goodreads.com (unless otherwise stated). Book titles are linked to their record on Destiny Discover for access to more information and/or to place a hold.
