2010 Best Books by the Sankofa Literary Society

Black Pearl Soul—Christian Fiction/ Faith-based /Inspiring Experiences

The Sankofa Literary Society and its founder Ella Curry are focused on the issues and lifestyles that define today’s avid readers — what they read, what they want out of their literature, how they connect to each other, what motivates them and how they feel about their community as a whole.

Many have stated, “There is no African American village…it’s dead,” we don’t feel that way. The Village is here, the village in now! Expand your horizons! We are a community of 11 bookclub units, 4 social networks and 22 nurses who want to enrich our community with books and the written word. Listed below are the books we have read in 2010 presented by small press publishers, traditional publishers and self-published authors. Join us today to add your voice and experiences to our union. Come on in and join this movement to Give the Gift of Knowledge!

While highlighting our heritage, our experiences and delivering our voice–we remain anchored to the spiritual, emotional and practical realities of our entire global community, supporting all races. We are not limited solely to reading just African American (AA) authors; we hope to educate our readers by offering a variety of quality literature and resources. We are offering you the best in literature period, from our perspective. Spread the word…please share this listing with at least 20 people you know! The books below will make excellent gifts all year long.

Our literary hallmarks indicate excellence in writing. Here are the books we want to showcase to the world.
