14 Bestselling Fiction Books for May/June - 2021

AALBC’s Bestselling Book SealOur bestsellers list has been published continuously since 1998 and is the most visible list focused on Black Books in existence. You will learn about books selling well, in the Black community, that may never show up on lists published by larger corporate entities.

Fiction: The #1 Fiction title for this period was, Voices of the Harlem Renaissance: Originally Published as The New Negro an Interpretation Edited by Alain Locke and Introduction by AALBC.com’s Founder, Troy Johnson. Sales were bolstered by a 50% off “Flash Sale” offered exclusively to AALBC text message subscribers.

Nonfiction: Books dealing with racism continue to sell strong. The new book, How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America by Clint Smith led all nonfiction titles.

Children’s Books: Cool Cuts written and illustrated by Mechal Renee Roe makes our list for the 2nd time and takes the top position for the first time.

Poetry: We did not sell enough poetry books to compile a list this period. However editor choices include, The Collection Plate: Poems by Kendra Allen
