It's super important for students to be reading authentic texts with characters from all walks of life, especially when reading historical fiction. It's also important that these texts are written from other perspectives, especially those that were oppressed.

This list contains 32 books under the following categories, written by diverse authors. These all focus on mostly American history:

  • Civil Rights
  • Slavery
  • Indigenous Peoples
  • Asian Americans
  • Immigration
  • War
  • Women's Rights
  • Recent History

This was paired with my historical fiction book club unit. Want another book list? Grab my dystopian book list or my social issues books list!
