Black teenage boys and books are not often a words you find together in mainstream media. Despite this, for us Black mothers raising Black boys we know that reading is a lifeline for our young males.  I’m so thankful that my son likes to read and is a good reader.  Reading is how our Black boys develop imagination, learn not to be afraid of not knowing and explore new worlds that they may not have access to in reality.  If you are the mother of a teenage boy, you’ve likely already begun building a library in your home with your son in mind.  Here are some books for teenage Black boys that I know your budding man will enjoy.

***I will add more books to this listing as often as I find more books for our Black teenage boys.
