It’s Black History Month here in the United States, and what better time to celebrate black beauty? Let’s take a peek at some of the YA covers that feature their amazing black leads.
There still is a lot of work to be done in terms of inclusive YA – there’s not nearly enough black leads, and queer black leads, and disabled black leads, or any combination of them, and not nearly enough represented on covers. But for today, we can admire the beauty we’ve been given so far – and remind publishing that hey, these books are great, and representation is important. More, please!
