It’s Black History Month. Want to learn about books written by African American authors? Here are a dozen websites devoted to Black Lit. Some of these have been inactive for an extended time, but the articles are still interesting (and who knows—if the bloggers see readers accessing their sites, maybe they’ll be motivated to add new content).

  • African Americans On the Move Book Club features new books and interviews their authors.
  • African Book Addict is written by a Ghanaian American woman who reviews books she’s read and shares new books she’s eagerly anticipating.
  • Brown Girl Reading has an Instagram thing going on for Black History Month called the #ReadSoulLit photo challenge where people post pictures of the books they’re reading.
  • Nenitraanna posts more reviews and other lifestyle content too.
  • Bookshy has a unique way of exploring African American literature.
  • Black and Bookish Blog celebrates Black literature and culture.
  • Urban Bookish blogs about contemporary urban fiction.
  • Literally Black reviews books by Black authors.
  • The Black Book Blog reviews books by diverse authors.
  • In addition to reviews, Black & Bookish also includes articles about writing, culture, and activism.
  • Book Girl Magic celebrates Black women through book reviews and a book club.
  • Mek Life reviews African American literature and also makes music and wellness recommendations.

Some of these blogs were culled from these articles:
