Please read happy Black books too. We don't just write about slavery and colonialism. Consume Black history and art about anything. It all helps to decenter whiteness

Personally found this to be a good resource for speculative fiction (important note: the link is poc authors, not black authors and those 2 terms aren't interchangeable, so you'll still need to do a bit of research)

(just re-read my tweet and realised that I didn't make it clear I was aiming my suggestion & note at white ppl looking to expand their reading lists, not the op's who will be waaaay more informed about this than me and obv don't need the black/poc difference pointing out! 😅)

TIL! Thanks. I loved the Count of Monte Cristo but never researched Dumas!
