Book Reviews

Founded in 1992 at the time that Terry McMillan's "Waiting to Exhale" was just hitting the market, QBR is the first national book review exclusively dedicated to books about the African experience. In its pages you will find fiction, nonfiction, poetry, children's books, health and lifestyle management, writers from Africa and the Caribbean--the whole of the Diaspora, the whole of our experience. How do you know who the newest authors are? How do you know what to read? Do you still wait for second hand "word of mouth" recommendations for the books you read? How do you know which books are good for your children? QBR is your reliable source for what is current in Black books."
