"[Fiction] Books by Authors of African Descent That Don't Feature Slavery, Colonialism, Racism, or Poverty (92 books)" (I might've posted this on FF in 2014.)
Note that the list compiler apparently defines "African descent" as black and nothing but. In comment #5, the compiler explains that author Leila Aboulela "was removed because the author is not of African descent. I understand she is Sudanese, but that is a nationality not a race. She has to be of the African race to be on this list." According to Wikipedia, Leila Aboulela is half Egyptian and half Sudanese. ‎· bentley
I used to lament that race and racism loomed so menacingly over black fiction. But then I realized that it's America's problem. Not mine. ‎· MoTO Babycakes
