About

Black girls the world over deserve to read books about themselves. Red.Blk.Grl is a monthly literary subscription featuring books with black characters written by black writers.

Β 

In 2014 there were 393 books written about persons of color. Only 43% of those books were written by people of the culture being written about. Relying on books written by cultural outsiders to tell our stories not only takes away our voice but allows others to define what it means to be black. Red.Blk.Grl. features books with black characters written by black writers as a means to promote books and authors that may go unnoticed due to required book lists that often Β leave persons of color missing from the titles. Red.Blk.Grl was born out of the founder’s own experience of a consistent feeling that she was “missing” from the books she loved to read as youth.

Our Vision

Here’s to finding yourself between the pages of your new favorite book!
