Woto wo bo ase gua (dwa) ntetea a, wohu ne nsono. If you patiently dissect an ant, you see its intestines. (With patience difficulties can be overcome.) Via Ghana Nation



Showcasing and appreciating HIGH quality middle grade and young-adult literary novels from authors of African descent. Please DO NOT put hoodlit, self-published books, memoirs, or other non-fiction genres.

If you're looking for MG & YA books that don't feature slavery, Jim Crow, racism, colorism, sports and the like, please see this list:
Middle Grade & Young Adult Books Written by African-American Authors That Don't Feature Slavery, Civil Rights, Race, Colorism, or Sports

I know this may be hard for whites in the publishing industry to believe, but African-American lives don't revolve around the above subjects and I'm noticing these subjects are DISPROPORTIONATE to stories that are adventurous, fun and carefree with full black casts. So I created the list above to try help black parents, kids and lovers of MG and YA. Please feel free to add to it. Whites in the publishing industry, feel free to stop jamming these subjects down our throats. It's low-key racism and you're not slick.

Addy All the books by Shannon Freeman have been removed because none of them were published in 2016.

Phil J Thanks for putting this list out. There are some books on here that deserve more attention than they're getting.

Sarah So, am I the only person who, upon seeing this list, was just like "Wattt?"

I mean, but then I clicked on the link and read the description, so now I understand. That's actually a pretty clever title to get people to view this.
