The above link brings up a video interview with Angie Thomas whose new book, Concrete Rose, came out last month. I haven’t read the book yet, but I have enjoyed her other books. They give you something to think about. I look forward to reading the new book.
Here is a great list of books by black authors, as discussed in the above linked article. I have read many of them, and they are great books. Period. Some others are on my TBR list. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these books that I’ve picked up.
