1. Mama Black Widow – by Ice Berg Slim.

2. The Narrative of The Life of Frederick Douglas – An American Slave – by Frederick Douglas
This book was recommended to understand the world from a different perspective other than the Civil Right Era perspective.
3. Black Reconstruction- by W.E.B. Du Bois
Killer Mike explained how this book will shed light on the mistakes that were made in not supporting Marcus Garvey’s efforts to repatriate black people to Africa.
