7 Interviews with Black Authors to Listen to Right Now


“Especially with racial pain in America, people ask you for your story so they can tell you they don’t believe it.” – Mira Jacob, episode 34


Feminist Book Club is committed to amplifying the voices of feminist authors, and debut authors of color more specifically. In lieu of a new interview this week, we’ve collected some of our favorite interviews with Black authors, showcasing a wide variety of stories, genres, and writing styles. Listen from this page or go back to the episode in your favorite podcast app!

This post should serve as a reminder that, while it’s wonderful to be reading explicitly anti-racists books like Me and White Supremacy or How to Be An Anti-Racist, we need to be reading diversely as possible in all our favorite genres.
