Black Writers Matter

An anthology of black Canadian writing.

edited by Whitney French

An anthology of African Canadian writing, Black Writers Matter offers a cross-section of established writers and newcomers to the literary world who tackle contemporary and pressing issues with beautiful, sometimes raw, prose.

As Whitney French says in her introduction, Black Writing Matters "injects new meaning into the word diversity [and] harbours a sacredness and an everydayness that offers black people dignity." An "invitation to read, share, and tell stories of Black narratives that are close to the bone," this collection feels particular to the black Canadian experience. (From University of Regina Press)
