*waves* hellloo. Welcome to blaquereads, a space for sharing books and literature by ( apologies for using a phrase I hate) people of colour.
This year I’ve made a concerted effort to only read books written by non white authors. Why? Because for too long, our writing has been ignored and undervalued, resulting in a single narrative for cultures rich with diversity and nuances.
So far, it has been a whirl of adventure and fantastic writing!
Stay posted, as this sort of- kind of book club, becomes a hub for all kinds of melanin literature magic, and follow the Instagram page @blaquereads, where you can see what books I’ve delved into.
