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, librarian curated music, 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.
On behalf of the Trinity College Black Women’s Organization and librarians, we hope you enjoy our chosen collection and continue to spread the love by using our suggestion form to add to the collection, sharing it with your friends, and, of course, "Cite Black Women."

We are expanding our definition of "writer" to include the sound labor of Black women and Black nonbinary music artists. Please enjoy these librarian curated playlists.
