National Buy A Book By A Black Author and Give It To Somebody Not Black Month

I came across this opinion piece in the Washington Post today and thought it was worth mentioning.  Since I used to work in a bookstore, I understand the pros-and-cons of a stand alone section for Af-Am books. Or any books not done by whites.  If you’re interested take a read.

  1. I’m game. Any suggestions?

    The last book I bought by an author whom I know is black* was Keith Knight’s big collection of “K Chronicles” comics. Good stuff and Keith signed it for me and drew a mildly unflattering yet charming little picture of me. But I’m not sure who I would give a copy of that too.

    *I buy a lot of textbooks and study aides for law school, but the race of the authors is unclear.
