Can't decide which books to read this year? Electric Literature has compiled an outstanding list of books by women of color that you NEED to check out. There's a Black Lives Matter memoir written by movement founders Patrisse Khan-Cullors and asha bandele, a compilation of Morgan Jerkins's essays, Naima Coster's first novel... something for everyone.
I've seen some people challenge themselves to ONLY read books by women of color for a year. It's a wonderful concept that expands your thinking and helps you become a better ally in the process. Why not try it?
