Glory Edim has turned a T-shirt slogan into a literary sanctuary.
“Well-Read Black Girl” started as a catchphrase for shirts, evolved into a book club and newsletter, progressed to a full-fledged book festival, and has now become a book of its own.
Edim’s anthology, fully titled Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves, includes essays from a range of black female writers.
She shared a bit of her own story and reflects on the broader history of black female writers — and their struggles — with NPR’s Andrea Y. Henderson; you can read their interview here.
