Its Wednesday, and that’s when I usually discuss my #LastNowNext. However, I want to do something different and focus on some books I am adding to my summer TBR to support BIPOC authors (FYI- BIPOC means Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color. Its okay if you didn’t know-I had to look it up earlier this week! Its all about learning and growing). Here are the books I purchased yesterday that I am reading this summer:
Some of these have been on my TBR forever (A Princess in Theory and Intercepted!) and some of these are new to me authors.
My goal is to pick a crop of BIPOC authors’ books to read each season. I don’t want to be supporting them just during this time of crisis. To be a true ally, I need to made the conscious effort to always be ally.
How are you planning to support the BIPOC community? I’m always looking for other ways I can help. I know I have benefited from white privilege and I need to continue to educate myself.
Finally, here are some non-fiction books I have read/listened to in the past that I think are really important to understanding the failings of our society in relation to people of color or for getting a broader perspective on what challenges BIPOC Americans face.
