Black History Month: Authors/Poets Edition

In honor of Black History Month being this February here in the States, I thought I’d share my list of favorite Black authors, poets and artists. These individuals have beautiful voices, and though they in no way need mine in order to validate them, I strongly recommend soaking in their wisdom and reflecting on what they have to say, no matter what background you come from.  Theirs are beautiful, powerful voices.

Have your own favorites to add to the list? Comment below, along with a link and maybe even your favorite collection/novel/non-fiction book by them!
