Continuing an annual tradition from his presidency, former President Barack Obama on Friday shared a list of his favorite books, movies and music of 2018.

“It gives me a moment to pause and reflect on the year through the books, movies, and music that I found most thought-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved,” he wrote on Facebook. “It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers – some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before.” 

Obama’s picks reflect a diverse array of interests and spotlight many works by artists of color.
