BookPeople is committed to consistently using their platform to elevate Black voices. They are committed to actively and consistently providing BIPOC authors and illustrators with the visibility they deserve and rarely receive, and continue to build an inclusive, safe, and welcoming space where booksellers and community of readers can come together to discover, listen, engage, and learn. They have gathered a list of resources recommended by their staff and leaders in the community to help readers discover new authors and illustrators, bring about important questions, encourage necessary conversations, and turn reading into action. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
