DA8A71DA-D9E2-4193-9730-88F51D97DB78BOOK BLURB

A collection of essays by black women who have found themselves in literature. 


  • Strength of black women
  • Identity



Though I am a white woman, I really enjoyed Well Read Black Girl. I try to read diversely so I can better understand those who are not like me and don’t have the same experiences I do. This book gave me a peek into the way black women feel and helped me understand them a little more and the struggles they experience. At the same time though, I felt that so many of the themes discussed could be applied to so many other people, not just black women. I even saw myself in many essays. This book has a ton of fiction, essays and poetry suggestions written by black women.

My copy of Well- Read Black Girl was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
