Welcome our new african-american reviewers πŸ‘‹

Find your next African American read

African American literature is, in many ways, the story of America β€” with its dark past, uncertain present, and hopeful future. Through the work of black authors telling black stories, we can get closer to understanding the strange and beautiful contradiction that is the American Dream.

Of course, there's much more to black fiction than what's on your average high school syllabus. At Reedsy Discovery, our team of reviewers is dedicated to bringing you the best new African American books each and every month. Scouring through stacks of independently published books, they're championing fresh new voices that wouldn't otherwise be heard.

So, sign up to Reedsy Discovery today and "follow" your favorite reviewers. Each time they find a book they think you'll love, you'll be the first one to know
