5 Must Read Books by Women of Colour

Today is #BookLoversDay and we are sharing with you five must read books written by women of colour.

We journey from fiction, non-fiction to poetry and satire.

These women have boldly claimed a space for their truth.
They have put pen to paper and we hope you will be inspired to tell the world your truth as you journey in self-revelation by reading these books.


Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.

I’m Judging You is a great book. I laughed out loud through the whole book. This is definitely on my must read book list too. She is amazing in real life too, I had the pleasure of meeting her this summer at BlogHer 17.
