    Some scifi/fantasy YA/adult recs by Black authors with Black MCs and (I think) Black LIs:
    A River of Royal Blood, Dread Nation, Daughters of Nri, The Weight of the Stars, A song of Wraiths and Ruin, Kingdom of Souls, Children of Blood and Bone, The Gilded Ones, Black Leopard Red Wolf…
    And just about anything by Nnedi Okorafor or N.K. Jemisin is great.
    ALSO Son of the Storm and Beasts of Prey are coming out later this year! (If you can, pre-orders help authors a lot)

    Can’t we get Black and Black? I’m honestly tired of seeing interracial love all the time. I’m also confused about the notion that swirl means POC and white relations… it means interracial relations period.

    Would you ever consider doing a book review series? I would devour that content. I'm so interested in your book opinions.

    What about our black sci-fi (real sci-fi not just horror likes what’s popular rn with Jordan Peele) our Queen Octavia E Butler paved the way in the 90s.

    I know your reading list is full but you should read Almost American Girl, it's in a comic book format

    This is valid. I want to read about intimacy between a black man and woman the same way I want this same concept in film

    Love your content, let's support black everything. But, as a French person, I need to say that it was hard to listen to you, I was just wondering when you would breath. French language doesn't allow us to speak that fast, without breathing breaks.

    THIS! Or a black coming of age movie. Basically, I want a movie that centers around someone who looks like me that doesn't involve racism or trauma.

    I appreciate this video so much, I've been desperate for books centering black girls.

    I'm not black so I don't really think I should be speaking on this matter but a read a great mystery book called "Zora and me" and a majority of the characters are black, that's not why I liked the book, of course, the story was really nice and you can get attached to almost any character.

    I really want to see more diverse interracial romances as well cuz not every romance needs a white protagonist.

    Read two of the four I bought because of this video and I can't stop thinking about what you said about you liking "boring" books. I have had such a hard time finding books I actually like… but I realize that's the kind of books I like too. Characters discovering something about themselves… so thank you kenya ❤

    I shop on Amazon because it’s cheaper and it’s a wider range of authors. It is sad that black romance isn’t out in the open for us to see but there are many black romance authors!! I love books as well 💗

    Kenya: Can we get more black romance books?
    Me: Idk, are YOU going to be one of the people writing black romance books?
    Because we can't do it alone.
