February is a special time to honor the contributions of African Americans in U.S. History. Our influence can be found in music, dance, tech, pop culture, literature and more. MahoganyBooks is dedicated to meeting the literary needs of readers in search of books written for, by, or about people of the African Diaspora. I’m happy to share a few books on their site to help you take control of your money. Check out my list below:
