            Great list. Glad they put Tananarive Due, Jamaica Kincaid. I like Asha Bandele, her book about her marriage should have been on there as well. I've read several of the books and there's such a great selection of genres. Thank for posting @NY!!

                  OMG i love that book and the other four that belong to that collection. See if you can find the version that has all five books in one volume, you'll love it. I'll look for my copy at my mom's over the weekend if I find it I'll inbox you on Monday...

                    From that particular list I've read:

                    Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl - Harriet Jacobs

                    The Color Purple- Alice Walker (I love all her books, though)

                    But there were some books missing I thought could have been included, but overall it was a pretty good list. They had a few bell hooks books on the list, which is great (I loved her in high school and still do).

                    Thanks for sharing.. great reading list.

                      Wow that's a great idea, I'll definitely do that. This list of 100 will quickly turn into 100+ lol but I'm fine with that. I've been slacking on my reading and I think it's time I get back to it. I look forward to hearing from you!

                        Im catching up too but I have to get through these Game Of Throne books before I read anything else. It's bad enough it took me a year to pick these up. No

                          Wench is set in the 1840-1860. It is about slave mistresses who meet at a hotel (in free state) on summer "vacations" with their white masters.
