As I said in my last post, I came across this opinion piece in yesterday’s Washington Post. The one comment asked for recommendations of books. So I thought I would do a short list of books by black authors that might be of interest.
Douglass’ Women and Voodoo Season by Jewell Parker Rhodes
Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned by Walter Mosley (of Easy Rawlins fame)
Joplin’s Ghost by Tananarive Due
Cane River and Red River by Lalita Tademy
The Polished Hoe by Austin Clarke (Carribean author and set in the Carribean)
What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day by Pearl Cleage
This is a list to just get started. If you know someone who is into particular genre fiction (romance, horror, etc.) there are authors in those genres that I can point you to.
