    Love the series idea, and love this song / album / artist. Will you do the same type of feature for books? SO MANY fantastic authors who pay homage to the “hyphen” as well!

      Thank you, Amy! I am thinking about doing the same series for books as well…but probably not for books you had in mind. I’m thinking about YA novels. That’s all I have the energy to read nowadays. They will be well-written YA novels though, don’t worry, lol.

    That’s great! What would you recommend? I might read them and add it to the list.

      I seem to only have Ghanaian young adult books… how random! I may have read more that count but it’s often hard to know where authors really are from / are now / how they identify, especially for some of the Kindle only ones (I spent some time searching Diana McBagonluri with no luck, for example.) I do know these three though at least:
      1. Between Sisters by Adwoa Badoe, a Ghanaian-Canadian
      2. Powder Necklace by Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond, a Ghanaian-American
      3. True Murder by Yaba Badoe, a British-Ghanaian
