Audiobook Recommendations from Black Bookstagrammers

Explore these audiobook picks from Black creators within the bookstagram community.

Note that these audiobooks range widely in genre. We encourage everyone to read not just antiracist books, but also, as Nic Stone puts it, to “read books about explicitly black people—especially black kids—just being human. Doing things humans are allowed to do in our imaginations: falling in love, dealing with illness, navigating time travel, questioning other aspects of their identities, saving their country, fighting with their parents.”
