Haven't read anything on your list but Between the World and Me, so I can't speak on those books, but I will definitely second that nomination.

From the posted list, I have:

read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (would recommend - I think of Henrietta occasionally to this day);

Lab Girl and The Sixth Extinction have been on my to-read list;

I have not heard of any of these other books but a few of them look like they might be relevant to my interests.

Evicted is worth reading. Capital is... I mean, it's a 700pp powerpoint but what it lays out is certainly a useful framework for understanding money as it most probably is, as opposed to money as it's been demonstrated. I haven't read the rest of his list but 2/7 are totally worth the time.
