message 1: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Inheriting the Trade is a great book, but it's not written by a black author.


message 2: by the gift (new)

the gift If this is 'African American' there are a few that are just African, such as 'say you're one of them' and 'things fall apart'... if black means of African descent or african, there is a lot of that continent, there is also a lot of Brazil...
