#MarchSpotlight: The Free Black Women’s Library of LA

What’s up everyone? I am so excited for this episode because I’ve never done a Spotlight episode before!

I really wanted to showcase a badass group of women who are making big moves and changing the world we live in and who better to discuss this with than a literary group of talented women who promote reading and books specifically by Black women authors!?

The Free Black Women’s Library started in NYC and has a location in Los Angeles, California and I had the opportunity to speak with one of the main organizers, Asha, from the LA location.
