Amplifying the Voices of Writers of Colour.
If you're looking for exciting new books written by POC, I've got you covered!
Whether you like literary fiction, short stories, nonfiction essay collections or fantasy, there's a writer of colour who has written a book with your name on it.
Every Wednesday I post a new review on the blog. Once a month I post a recap of the books I've read for the previous month. At the beginning of every month I share a list of all the great books coming out by POC. And much more...Don't miss anything, get on the list.
Hey I'm Lalaa,
Book Reviewer &
Community + Culture Writer
The literary world is jam-packed with books shifting the conversation about race, identity and belonging and 'This Black Girl Reads' aims to bring those stories to your bookshelf.
I've always loved reading the stories of people who look like me. No matter the situation there’s a book I can point to and a story I can lean on. I too have wished to have 'The Bluest Eye;' I've bellowed "I'm a woman, phenomenally, phenomenal woman, that's me;" and I've even shouted YES like Shonda. These stories are not mine but they are all a part of me, a part of us.
Our stories and voices are important and my goal is to continue reading them and sharing them. To discover, discuss and celebrate these stories but most importantly introduce other Black Girls to them too, that they may discover their own story within. Hope I can help you find your next read...
