WELL-READ BLACK GIRL

1,050.00

In this timely anthology, Glory Edim, founder of the online community, Well-Read Black Girl, brings together original essays by some of America’s best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all – regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability – have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature.

Whether it’s learning about the complexities of femalehood from Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, finding a new type of love in The Color Purple , or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, each essay reminds us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club-turned-online community, Edim has created a space where black women’s writing, knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world, and ourselves.

Contributors include: Jesmyn Ward ( Sing, Unburied, Sing ), Lynn Nottage ( Sweat ), Jacqueline Woodson ( Another Brooklyn ), Gabourey Sidibe ( This Is Just My Face ), Morgan Jerkins ( This Will Be My Undoing ), Tayari Jones ( An American Marriage ), Rebecca Walker ( Black, White and Jewish ), and Barbara Smith ( Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology ).
