Salutations from California, Selkiem.
Some books I would recommend for you are:
*Between the World and Me - It is a narration of an African American and his perspective on African American history, as well as sensitive issues like segregation and racism.
*The Alchemist - In which a young shepherd travels to Egypt to find his treasure. Seemingly dull, this novel will teach you about following your dreams and heart. Bill Clinton was once photographed carrying this book with him.
*Meditations - Written by a Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius himself, is a series of personal writings that consists of personal notes and ideas on Stoic philosophy. It was a source of his own guidance and self-improvement.
If you ever read them in the near future, please let me know how it went 🙂 ,
