This list is not all inclusive, there may be other self development books out there by Black Authors not included here. Why did I put this list together you may be asking? Well, over the last 2 years I've read, well listened to over 15 self development and entrepreneurship books on Audible. These books are touted as being the best books out there. Yes I will admit they were all good books. But after looking back, I realized not one of those books were written by a black author. So I, in a way, put this list together for my self as books I want to read or listen to in the coming year. And, I thought it important for me to share this list to others so we all can be uplifted by black authors as well. Personally on my journey to improve self, I plan on reading(listening to lol) at least 10 of these books before the end of the year. Perhaps you should try as well. 

Now a days I personally enjoy listening to books on Audible over reading physical books. The last physical book I read was probably 8 years ago by Chimamanda Adichie, That Thing Around Your Neck. I prefer listening to books on Audible because I feel like I can multi task. I often listen on my commute to and from work, while working out, running errands, or cleaning up and or cooking in the house. Also Audible is cheaper than buying physical books and I'm cheap, so it works for me.  Anyways hope you enjoy this list, and are able to find at least one book that resonates with you.
