Black History Month 5 Star Recommendations!

The following books are books I have read and loved every page! February is Black History Month and I am recommending these books in honor of this occasion.

The Warmth of Other Sons by Isabel Wilkerson
is about the great American migration of the southern African Americans to the northern United States. Featuring three families and their trials and triumphs.

Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas, autobiography simply is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read. I read it in an afternoon, I just couldn't put it down. All Americans should read this book it's part of their heritage. Available for free kindle addition.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett is the only fiction book I am recommending for Black History month. A delightful, beautifully written book. Started out as a sleeper and now has become a national bestseller. Couldn't put this down either. So much to love in this book!

Would love to hear from you if you have read any of these three or have other Black History Month recommendations of your own. All of these books are available on Amazon either in paperback or Kindle.



  1. Thanks for this. I loved The Help but I hadn't heard of the others. I added them to my TBR.

  2. Hi, I'd also recommend The Personal History of Rachel duPree by ann Weisgarber - an orange nominated read about a black woman setting up a homestead in 19th century America.
    I loved The Help too, not seen the film yet though!
