Oooh, I also recommend Ta-Nehisi Coates, but some other non-fiction diverse authors that stand out from my history major days is Anne Moody's Coming of Age in Mississippi. It's about her childhood/adolescence in MI as a young black girl through her involvement with CORE and SNCC in her 20s. This is actually one of my all-time favorite books, I just found it to be a very gripping and engaging memoir will really vivid description and narration. Mae M. Ngai's book on illegal immigration and how certain types of immigration even became illegal in the first place is really interesting and timely, but admittedly it's a pretty dense, stats-filled history book. It kept my attention though, and definitely left me feeling like everyone should read it since it addresses so many misconceptions about the immigration and citizenship process and how racism was always embedded in it. I also really liked the book Hidden Figures was based on, which is definitely a lighter history book, but still super fascinating.
