Melanin Book Challenge

This tag was inspired by my resolution to support more black people in their various areas of expertise. I also drew inspiration from book challenges I saw where readers are challenged to read more books with LGBTQI+ characters and/or by LGBTQI+ authors.

I hope that this encourages a culture of reading in the black community and also helps people of other races understand the stories told by us.

Melanin Book Challenge:

  1. A book written by a black female author
  2. A book written by a black male author
  3. A book written by a black LGBTQI+ author
  4. A book written by a black author that became a film adaptation
  5. A black history book
  6. An autobiography of a black figure
  7. A book translated from an African language
  8. A book set in Africa
  9. A book with a black protagonist
  10. A book written by a black figure you admire
  11. A book with a black LGBTQI+ main character
  12. A book addressing present racial inequalities
  13. A cook book written by a black author
  14. A book of poetry by a black author/poet
  15. A book recommended by a black person you know
