Historical Black Fiction!
(Historical fiction books about Black folks)
It’s that time ladies. Time to Rock the Vote! For the month of February we are going to read a Historical Black Fiction book. Time to look back and remember our past.
As always there are some great titles up for vote this time.
Here are the Rules for Voting.
1. You may vote for three (3) books.
2. All members get to vote only once.
3. Last Day to vote will be January 19, 2014. (Midnight Los Angeles time)
4. The book with the most votes wins. But if there is a tie there will be a 48 hour death match. The two or three books will go into a head to head competition for only 48 hours. Whichever book is left standing (with the most votes) wins!
Below the poll you will find the title of the books linked to a brief description. Now… may the best book win!!
