How reading books by authors of colour helps us reclaim our humanity
Black author and antiracism educator Layla F. Saad has always been a book nerd. But for the majority of her life, the books that she read did not represent her. She was 15 years old the first time she read a book by a Black author, and 33 years old when she intentionally started reading books by Black authors and authors of colour consistently. In her quest to become a good ancestor, she has learned that reading books by authors of colour can help us all reclaim our humanity.
