Brown Girls in the Rain

This blog is a safe space for women of color. We blog about racism and ignorance we ourselves have experienced and skin color related social issues happening elsewhere in the world.

POC authors

I’m so sick of reading poc centric books written by white authors. I don’t think I can do it anymore. There’s always some sort of stereotype being presented. Here are some great authors who are non-white.

1. Shyam Selvadurai - Funny Boy, Cinnamon Garden

2. Octavia E. Butler - Kindred

3. Michael Ondaatje - Anil’s Ghost

4. Alice Walker - The Secret of Possessing Joy, The Color Purple

6. Toni Morisson - Beloved Look them up and have fun reading!

5. Jhumpa Lahiri - The Namesake
