Reading lists for Black Boys and Collegiate Black Men

For more than a decade and a half now, I've been working on arts and educational projects with black boys and collegiate black men. We read together, and the guys often ask me about additional readings. I've started gathering a few of the selections we've covered:

• A book list for collegiate black men -- twenty-five books I have covered with college students.

A book list for black boys -- twenty-five recommendations for high school black boys.

African American Comic books and graphic novels -- twenty works covered with college students. 

Covering volumes of poetry with collegiate black men -- a selection of poetry volumes we covered.

Individual publications 
• The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead
The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander
The Big Smoke by Adrian Matejka
