The Los Angeles Free Black Women's Library
The Free Black Women's Library, conceived by Ola Ronke, started as a Brooklyn-based mobile library containing only books by Black women.
Sharing a book is like conjuring magic and books by Black women are some deep shit (pardon my French). This summer, with Ola's blessings, we will be bringing you the Los Angles Free Black Women's Library. We are Antoinette Scully, creator of Black & Bookish, and Camari Carter Hawkins, writer of Death by Comb.
Bring a book written by a Black women, and at TFBWL, trade your used book for another. It's a one-to-one trade for as many books as you bring. We will also have themed days, book clubs, panel discussions, author chats, and more.
Events will be located at businesses round Los Angeles, including Sip and Sonder, a new cafe opening up in Inglewood.
Our branch opens March 2019!
We are always accepting donations for the Los Angeles branch of The Free Black Women's Library. Titles can be of any genre and MUST BE WRITTEN BY A BLACK WOMAN.
