Mama Lockdown: Recognition for Black Literature Beyond Historical

Mama Lockdown: Recognition for Black Literature Beyond Historical

Community, join this discussion regarding Cybils' finalists shortlist. It is not enough to complain. We need dialogue and then action so weigh in.

In 2010, let's commit to promoting, supporting and nominating books by people of color so all readers are aware of the diversity available to them.

Also check out Doret's response to the Cybils' list at Happy Nappy Bookseller.

Ari, we are doing well. I was inviting regular readers from here. Many like to read but I'm trying to coax them to share.

Grew quite nicely. One more wave. Another increment as Neesha says.
