On -isms: Black Biography Bibliography

We're winding down Black History Month and we haven't highlighted nearly enough Black creators here. So with this week's column, I'm going to point you to a number of published books about Black creators. This isn't a comprehensive list, by any means. I've focused on books about Black creators, not books about creators that have one or two Black people highlighted, or books that talk about Black characters. I can't say I've read all of them, but I haven't found any yet that weren't worth my time.That's a really short list, so I'm actually hoping I missed a few. Even so, there's not nearly as many of these types of books as there should be, so encourage comic historians to write more like them. We have barely scratched the surface here.
