Throughout February, I intend to read books that discuss the black experience from a variety of different perspectives. As a person of color, I find it very important to read black voices and understand the issues of the past and the current issues plaguing the black community. Therefore, it is my goal this month to incorporate as many books by black authors and the black experience in general into my seemingly never-ending TBR list/NetGalley request list.

As always, let me know in the comments below what you’re most excited about reading this month!
