Well-Read Black Girl is a book club dedicated to Black women writers.

The words loved me and I loved them in return. ~ Sonia Sanchez

Our goal is to introduce a cohort of diverse writers to future generations – contemporary authors who are non-binary, queer, trans, and disabled. To address inequalities and improve communities through reading and reflecting on the works of Black women.

THE FOUNDER

My name is Glory Edim, founder of WRBG

Well-Read Black Girl (WRBG) is a book club turned literary festival based in Brooklyn, NY. WRBG provides a vital space for Black women readers and writers to connect and grow in conversation.

Since launching in 2015, WRBG has steadily grown into a thriving online community of 237K passionate Instagram followers. Our goal is to showcase the universality of Black women through literature. Through reading our community addresses racial inequity in publishing and pays homage to the literary legacies of Black women writers like Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and Maya Angelou.
