Reading Goal: Diversity Authors

I mentioned this post in my April 2021 TBR. This post should come out in the beginning of April. Racial equity is something I grew more cognizant of at UC Berkeley. So it’s an important conversation to have, especially in the current American climate! I may not be able to storm the streets, but we can have these conversations.

Something I really wanted to do in my reading was feature and read authors who are people of color (POC). To help me do this I’d blog these titles. As I read a book from a POC, I’d list the book title here, along with my experience (along with my book reviews)! I just feel it’d be a cool way to chronicle what I pick up! 🤞🏽 hopefully IF you read, you might consider these titles!

Note: Will be updating as I go, please check back!

Right now have so much to read, I can only manage 1 title/month. WILL read more, you should too!

I also wanted to use this post to highlight videos I’ve seen about reading POC authors!

Took part in the Black Author Readathon and Lunar New Year Readathon. Too late to blog it, but still will be doing book reviews for what I’ve read!

  1. Hi Madell! Wish I could be just like you, a wide reader person. I don’t read unless I have too. 😦 Love you!
