Authors, of African descent, who've made the New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2017

Recommended Posts

The New York Times has identified 100 books from all the books they have reviewed over the past year to be the most "notable."  Of that list 11 were books were written by Black* writers.


Boy, if we depended solely upon The New York Times to identify notable books written by Black folks we'd be in for a world of disappointment.  Thankfully we have other options to discover books written by Black people.  The number of these options have greatly diminished over the years, which is why Ill be working with come folks promoting an effort called the 2018 Blackout #readingblackout


I just learned about #readingblackout this effort today.  It was started by booktuber (another new one one me. basically a person who is part of community of people who create book related videos on youtube).  Enjoy.




*Black is a subjective term.  As a result, some may disagree that all of the author's I've identified are indeed Black.
