The Black Experience: Books with Black Aromantic characters/ by Black Aro Authors


Hello, everyone!

Welcome to The Black Experience, a month long blog series through February, in honour of Black History Month, which features Black bloggers, booktubers and authors. This project aims at highlighting Black stories and experiences both in real life and in publishing, as well as showing our individual and collective struggles.

Its Aromantic Awareness week! While Black History Month on its on is one of my favourite months of the year, aromanticism awareness week also being in February makes it even dearer to me. And so, today I’ll be sharing a list of books with characters just like me or by authors with the same romantic orientation. I hope you enjoy this post of Black aro-ness.
