HeadCount’s Black History Month Booklist + Black-Owned Bookstores

We created a booklist to celebrate Black History Month! Below, you’ll find a list of books by Black Authors that inspire us to get active, to reflect on history and participate in our democracy! We also want to highlight, support and celebrate local Black-owned bookstores across the country. Buying from smaller stores is a great way to support your local community and be exposed to a whole new set of recommendations. Browse the state-by-state list below and try to find a store close to you as you work through our booklist reads!


If you’re looking for more good reads, we also love this Booklist in the NYT from Ibram X Kendi!
