Hello! I’m Lauren
Writer & Avid Reader
I created this blog because I wanted to make a ‘Black Library’ online for easy access to essential poems, essays, and short stories written by and for Black people. There are many literary works that we, as a people and culture, need to read. So I made this website to be a space where I showcase, introduce, and discuss African and African American Literature. Join me in exploring the complexities of The Black Vernacular.
While Black Culture will be the focus, I will also discuss works by other marginalized groups and People of Color. Let’s Learn together.
