It’s Black History Month, so it’s the perfect time to add some books by brilliant Black writers to your reading list.
However, when a conscious effort is made to learn more about Blackness, people often fall into the trap of centring Black pain and trauma. The stories are almost exclusively about racism or anti-racism, slavery, poverty, crime.
While there is nothing wrong with reading about the history of struggle and oppression faced by generations of Black people – and these are important things to learn about – it’s vital that we don’t make this the only narrative.
There is so much more to Blackness. There is joy, romance, fantasy, sorrow, emotional pain that has nothing to do with racial trauma.
If you’re serious about engaging with the work of Black writers, and the stories of Black people – both historic and contemporary – it’s important to widen the scope of what you’re reading. Black people must be allowed to have unique, nuanced and multifaceted stories, just like white people do.
So, here are nine books by Black authors – fiction and non-fiction – that don’t focus on pain, trauma or racism. Get them on your bedside table, stat:
