This week, in the wake of George Floyd’s killing and the demonstrations that followed, I’ve received letters asking for reading recommendations. Here are my top 10 picks of books to improve our understanding of racial relations, followed by my top 10 African-American history books.
Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man: 1952 novel deservedly on many “best 20th century American novels” lists.
Booker T. Washington’s Up From Slavery: A classic autobiography showing perseverance under pressure.
