Fighting against the cultural erasure and violent silencing of black perspectives in general, and the specific dearth of black writers in today's literary landscape, the Black Voices Series aims to lend a platform to black-identified writers and multi-modal artists. Our aim is to hold space. To foster community. To loudly proclaim that our voices are worthy, that our words are magic, in a world quick to deny those truths. We thank those who send us their work for trusting that we will honor it.
