1000 Titles of #1000BlackGirlBooks

Resource Guide Update

After months of reviewing and collecting books, we are happy to report that the resource guide now has 1000 independent titles of black girl books. As of January 2017, the campaign has collected 9000 books where black girls are the main characters-that equals 1535 distinct books. We are not done. If you know of a black girl book, not listed in the resource guide, please send us a copy or two so we can add it to our collection.


If your book is not yet listed do not worry it will soon be added. Please send us books not titles; we are building an in-house library and seek to collect two copies of each  book listed in our resource guide. Our library will soon be open to the public by appointment.


Your support makes this possible. Financial donations are always welcomed. All donations are tax-deductible.
