Read some of these books to better your understanding, grow your empathy, and get activated. Visit your local black-owned bookstore, like The Pan-African Connection in Dallas, a black-owned online bookstore or public library first, and please only buy from retailers like Amazon as a last resort. We believe people should be fairly paid for their work, and big-box retailers can take a pricey cut.
