Read Africa

Scholar Recommended Reads

Americans often have limited knowledge about Africa.  Accurate, balanced books can change and expand what we know, think and feel about Africa. Our Read Africa initiative promotes books that have been vetted by African Studies scholars.  Read Africa bibliographies listed below provide easy access to age appropriate books.
