01 | The good immigrant
02 | So you want to talk about race
by Ijeoma Oluo
03 | Why I’m no longer talking
to white people about race
I love the book, because for the first time in my life, as a black Spaniard, I felt that a book finally expresses what most of the black and POC community have and still suffer (that racism is a white collective problem) not ours. Also, the book acknowledges the story of racism since slavery started, giving you verified data.
It's simply amazing and I totally recommend it to everybody. — Damian
04 | Don't touch my hair
by Emma Dabiri
The book takes you on a raw and real journey of what it is like growing up as a mixed-race child into womanhood from the eyes of Emma. It opens up a lot of relatable experiences that cover the topics of hair, history, and pain. It exceeded my expectations and I cannot recommend this book more highly. — J'nae
