Deacon King Kong by James McBride: In September 1969, a fumbling, cranky old church deacon shuffles into the courtyard of the Cause Houses housing project in south Brooklyn, pulls a .38 from his pocket, and shoots the project's drug dealer at point-blank range. As the story deepens, it becomes clear that the lives of the characters – caught in the tumultuous swirl of 1960s New York – overlap in unexpected ways.

In The Warmth of Other Suns, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life.
