Hats off to Dee Bailey for bringing together publishers, authors, aspiring authors and those who just love books at The Black Bookcase on Saturday. This is such an important event 1. to bring to the fore black publishers and authors who exist in the market 2. to inspire young Black authors who may not see themselves represented in mainstream publishing and show them that anything is possible 3. to celebrate books featuring black characters as well as black authors.
I have posted so many articles recently on my Conscious Dreams Publishing about the lack of diversity in publishing. Only 1% of children's books feature BAME protagonists. Things need to change! This is a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of authors and to be inspired to take action. ✔businesses ready ✔books packed
