Historian Carter G. Woodson had specific goals when he created “Negro History Week,” what later became Black History Month, in 1926. He wanted to instill pride in black Americans and make black history synonymous with American history. In honor of Black History month, our friends at Real Simple have rounded up a list of incredible books that should definitely make your Saturday reading list. From Malcolm X's biography to Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, these poignant novels represent years of struggles and successes. We'd definitely recommend checking these off.
