100 Authors of Colour

As part of my 30 Before 30 challenge, I want to read 100 authors of colour before I hit 30. I've been making more of an effort to read books by people from completely different backgrounds, races and countries to my own but the amount of authors of colour I've read is still shockingly low, and now I plan to rectify it! I'll continue to add to the list below as I read, and would welcome any of your recommendations for authors I should try.

Note: I am including mixed race authors in this challenge.


  1. Ayòbámi Adébáyò
  2. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  3. Ivy Alvarez
  4. Maya Angelou
  5. Malorie Blackman
