In honor of the holiday season and Buy Black Buffalo week, I thought it would be a great idea to highlight some gifts that I think are important to add to your list.

Growing up I was an avid reader and would indulge in good hood fiction stories like The Coldest Winter Ever, Fly Girl, A Hustlers Wife, B-More Careful and True To The Game just to name a few. It was these books that allowed me to escape into my own fictional world and made me want to read more. After having read all the fictional stories I could I moved on to self-help books and Biographraphys.

All in all I learned something, that readers are leaders, and learning from fiction and or non-fiction helps you to open up to see the world from many lenses.

This season let's provide a gift that keeps giving which is literature. For the new year, 2021 add "Read More" to your new goals and let's kick off reading books written by people right here in Buffalo, NY.

Below are a few books I think you should indulge in during Buy Black Buffalo Week for you and your family.
