WHY BGF?

BGR is a culturally creative space where the notion that "fiction stories featuring women of color is an unsuccessful market" will be challenged. Here, quality romance novels will be recommended, highlighted, and curated. It's a magnifying glass on love with the goal being the care and affection of women who look like us.

 

It was borne from Issa Rae being unapologetically awkward and female and black; from the beauty of Serena Williams; to dispel the myth of the Jezebel and the Angry Black Woman, unable of compassion and nurturing; to reinforce that Atlas was not a black woman, therefore, it is not on us to continuously carry the weight of communities despite painful and neglected shoulders; to uplift brown beauty, and to create a space where you, where we can feel beautiful, be beautiful, and be seen as totems rather than the lowest rung of the social ladder.
