Well Read Black Girl OverviewWell-Read Black Girl is an anthology of essays by black women authors and readers alike, constituting a multidimensional study of role of literature in developing black girls' minds and futures. The 21 essays recount first-person narratives of fateful encounters with famous black authors, discoveries of life-changing works, and general anecdotes about the written word and, in particular, the written word as consumed and produced by black women. Highly accessible in both language and theme, this anthology deftly explores how authors such as Toni Morrison, April Sinclair, James Baldwin, and others have left their mark and continue to inspire generations of young, black readers who struggle to see themselves represented realistically and positively in contemporary America.
