Today on We Are Austin was celebrating the latest reads of black excellence from BookPeople backed by Well-Read Black Girl. A suggested read by Martiza Moulite & Maika Moulite 'ONE OF THE GOOD ONES'.

The Well-Read Black Girl Book Club was started in 2015 by Gloria Edim, WRBG's goal to showcase Black women through literature. Addressing racial inequity in publishing and honoring the literary legacies of Black women writes such as Toni Morrison, Alice Walker and Maya Angelou.

In 2019, the American Booksellers Association partnered with Well-Read Black Girl bringing book club meetings to independent bookstores to amplify the voice of Black women writers. In person, and virtually these days.
