INTRODUCTION: THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME
I’ve been meaning to set up this blog for a while… for so many reasons, but then the push, then the shove came when I decided to do the research for my PhD on Black British Publishers. Then it recently came to notice that this is a landmark time to celebrate and recognise Black publishers. The end of 2016 into 2017 has seen a surge of anniversaries in the black publishing world for us to recognise, celebrate and congratulate those who have achieved in this field.
