Literary Black Girl is a book review blog dedicated to sharing stories written by women of color, and those of Black women in particular.
“Your silence will not protect you. But for every real word spoken, for every attempt I had ever made to speak those truths for which I am still seeking, I had made contact with other women while we examined the words to fit into a world in which we all believed, bridging our differences. And it was the concern and caring of all those women which gave me strength and enabled me to scrutinize the essentials of my living.” — Audre Lorde (“The Transformation of Silence into Language and Action”)
Here we will speak up, and through studying the words and language of our sisters, find ways to bridge our differences to build a brighter future for ourselves and our communities.
