15 Great Books on Black History to Add to Your Reading List

When most of us went through school, we learned history from a largely white-centric point of view. African history, and the history of Black people in the United States, didn't feature prominently in most of our lessons. If your own education has a few gaps, and it's easy to fill those in now. Doing the reading also takes the burden of educating others off our Black friends and colleagues, so consider working your way through this reading list a double win.
