It’s Week 3 of Nonfiction November and Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction is the host this week! There are three ways to join: Be the Expert, Ask the Expert, or Become the Expert. Let’s get started!
If 2020 is going to be remembered for anything, it’s going to be the year that racial injustice, systemic racism, and white fragility rocketed to the forefront of all our collective minds.
Here is a list of the nonfcition antiracist books I’ve read so far this year:
- White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People To Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo
- Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi
- How To Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi
- Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad
- How We Fight For Our Lives by Saeed Jones
- Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower by Brittney Cooper
- Hood Feminism: Notes from the Woman That a Movement Forgot by Mikki Kendall
- A Knock At Midnight by Brittany K. Barnett
- The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power by Dierdre Mask
- Why We’re Polarized by Ezra Klein
- Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America by Conor Dougherty
- My Time Among the Whites: Notes From an Unfinished Education by Jennine Capo Crucet

I would love any and all (fiction and nonfiction) recommendations for more antiracist books to add to my TBR!
