Join the Trinity College Black Women’s Organization (T.C.B.W.O.) and librarians in celebrating BIPOC and QTBIPOC authors by exploring this collection of books that spotlight the histories, stories, and lived experiences of Black women and nonbinary writers. This collection includes historical and liberatory texts, feminist and womanist writings, classic and contemporary fiction across the diaspora, biographies and memoirs, short stories, comics and graphic novels, poetry, body positivity and self-love, and more. We also feature books held at Wesleyan and Connecticut College libraries. You may borrow these materials by using the request option in OneSearch.
