Black Lives Matter

On my personal social channels, I have been quite vocal in my support for Black Lives Matter. I want to clearly state that I, and Lavish Literature by extension, will always support Black Lives Matter. While I aim to create a welcoming space to discuss books, there is no place for injustice and prejudice here — or anywhere.

I am committed to diversity and will actively work to uplift Black voices and support Black authors. A quick look through my Goodreads shelves shows that the books I’ve read have been predominantly by white authors; only 12.5% of the books that I’ve read this year were by Black authors. I will read more diversely and more strongly champion books by Black authors.
