Books to Read This Month by Local African American Authors

As part of our African American History Month celebrations, we are spotlighting local Black authors who were either raised in Northeast Florida or make their homes and livelihoods here now. From two-time Emmy award-winning news producer Nikesha Elise Williams, to a book of short stories and poems by Spoken word/Hip-Hop artist KnightKrawler, to award-winning author Rodney Hurst—this outstanding list of local black authors belongs in your "TBR" pile!
