TOP TEN FEMALE BOOKS
By Andre Austin

1. The Isis Papers By Frances Cress Welsing
2. The Blackman’s Guide To Understanding The BlackWoman By Shahrazad Ali
3. Beloved By Toni Morrison
4. I know why the Caged Bird Sings By Maya Angelou
5.Growing Up X By Ilyasah Shabazz
6. The Color Purple By Alice Walker
7. A Rasin in the Sun By Lorraine Hansberry
8. Maud Marthas By Gwendolyn Brooks
9. Song of Solomon By Toni Morrison
10. Their Eyes Were Watching God By Zora Neale Hurston
10. The Diary of Anne Frank By Anne Frank (Honorary Black)


Most of these books would set the approval of the Harlem Renaissance if in the time period, of both Garvey and Dubois of literature being valued both for aesthetics and criticizing ghetto realism and portray the race in a positive light. Not pandering to the demand of white publishers and readers exposing the worst elements to a white audience. I say take the good, bad and ugly in a good measured balance

Man, I really don't read books! Though I've seen the movie Beloved and it's a trip. It's been a while since I've seen it though. Thanks for this top sellers...I am not sure when the next time I'm actually going to read a book, but will keep those that you have posted in mind when I do!
