Now more than ever, home is where many of us are seeking refuge and solace for ourselves and our families in light of the novel coronavirus. It's so important to stay centered and encouraged during times like these. For this reason, the NBWJI team has compiled a reading list of personal favorites to help connect you and your family to the hope, strength, and resiliency of Black women and girls.
These books fall under a wide range of genres. They illuminate larger truths and themes that guide our work here at NBWJI, speaking to the human condition and experiences of Black women and girls without sacrificing heritage, language, or voice.

It is a difficult season. But, rest assured, we are a community. We are all in this together. And as history shows us, we will persevere.
Stay safe, healthy, and let’s get the conversation going!
