We share with hope that these titles provide mirrors into the political, social, and  personal realities of the intersection of Black lives with the notions of power, gender, race, faith, and love.

Reconstruction and Pod Save the People have come together again to create 'The Blackest Book Club' reading list as a meaningful celebration of Black History Month.

Featuring a curated collection of titles from classic and contemporary Black authors who inspire and challenge us, we share this list with you so that their genius will continue to create understanding and connection among us.
