A celebration of Black queer love across times, The Prophets is a lyrical debut novel by Robert Jones Jr. The story of Isaiah and Samuel, 2 young gay lovers enslaved on a Deep South plantation, is told by different characters with different perspectives. Even if you usually shy away from plantation novels (like me) this one is worth a try.

Read Until You Understand was something Farrah Jasmine Griffins dad always told her. Mixing her personal history with the legacies of Afro-American writers throughout the centuries, the author has really written a most interesting book. From 18th century enslaved writer Phillis Wheatley to James Baldwin and the great Toni Morrison she adores. The chapters are centered around certain themes which makes the book feel more like a story told to you than a history book about literature. It is both, in a way. Every quote, every book mentioned shows you that Griffin knows her stuff and it’s a pleasure to learn from her.
