The Latina Book Club supports our Black Brothers and Sisters and our Afro Latinx / Black Latinx Communities during these hard times.
Black Lives Matter.
We See You. We Hear You. We Support You.
Aside from donating money to the different organizations supporting the movement and the protesters, we want to support Afro-Latinx / Black Latinx authors by purchasing and reading their books. Below is a short list in no particular order. We welcome additions to this list.
Happy Reading. Take care and Stay Safe.
