Today and tomorrow we are taking part in the A More Diverse World Blog Tour put together by Aarti.
As Aarti excellently points out, speculative fiction in general, is extremely erased when it comes to POC. Not only are People of Colour authors erased but it is actually harder to find a book about People of Colour that is written by Person of Colour - and as we’ve said before, Author Authenticity Matters.
As part of the Blog Tour, today we will review The Burning Bush by Kenya Wright and tomorrow we will review Wild Seed by Octavia Butler.
We’re also taking this opportunity to link to other reviews we’ve written of books by POC authors with POC protagonist - the one’s we’re aware of. Let us know if we missed any.
