3 Upcoming Books by Black Authors to Watch out for

Feb. 22, 2022 |

I recently received three ARCs of upcoming books by Black authors to be published this year, and I'm super excited about reading them. I already sneaked in a quick read of each 😄 and I'm tempted to ditch my current book and start reading one of them. Many thanks to the publishers and authors for making these ARCs available for book devourers like me! 

𝗠𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗵𝗶𝘀, by Tara M. Stringfellow
Publishing date: April 5, 2022 | Random House Publishing |
𝗦𝘆𝗻𝗼𝗽𝘀𝗶𝘀: A spellbinding debut novel tracing three generations of a Southern Black family and one daughter’s discovery that she has the power to change her family’s legacy. Unfolding over seventy years through a chorus of unforgettable voices that move back and forth in time, 'Memphis' paints an indelible portrait of inheritance, celebrating the full complexity of what we pass down, in a family and as a country: brutality and justice, faith and forgiveness, sacrifice and love.

𝗗𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗸: 𝗔𝗻 𝗔𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝗔𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗕𝗼𝗼𝗸 by W. Kamau Bell; Kate Schatz
Publishing date: July 19, 2022 | Workman Publishing
𝗦𝘆𝗻𝗼𝗽𝘀𝗶𝘀: Overwhelmed by racial injustice? Outraged by the news? Find yourself asking, “What can I doooooo?” Do the Work! Revelatory and thought-provoking, this highly illustrated, highly informative interactive workbook gives readers a unique, hands-on understanding of systemic racism—and how we can dismantle it.

𝗦𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝗛𝗲𝗿 𝗕𝗮𝗰𝗸, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗢𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗦𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀, by Munashe Kaseke
Publishing date: July 25, 2022 | Mukana Press
𝗦𝘆𝗻𝗼𝗽𝘀𝗶𝘀: In 'Send Her Back and Other Stories', Munashe Kaseke offers an awfully intimate, fresh telling of the immigrant experience of black women in the United States. Kaseke peels back on the inner wranglings of characters caught between two worlds, be it by stories of dating outside one’s culture and race or failing to assimilate upon returning home after spending time abroad.
