Hello all! Yes Black History Month is just around the corner. This February Danielle from OneSmallPaw and I are hosting a read along of a great American classic called Jubilee by Margaret Walker and a #ReadSoulLit photo challenge over on Instagram. We’ve tried to make the photo challenge more engaging, with the hopes of seeing lots of new titles being pictured; henceforth, showing the wide range of fantastic black authors and genres in which they write. So I hope you’ll all try and join in for something at some point. If you don’t have Instagram you can follow me here to see what I post over there, but with a bit more explanation. Don’t forget to link #ReadSoulLit when you post your pictures on Instagram and Twitter. That helps people find us. Currently, there are 900+ photos on Instagram, which should spark everyone’s interest in reading black authors. Happy reading in February!

Well thank you and welcome to the blog! Hope this read along will spark some passionate conversation.
Will try to keep up with the Photo challenge this year – I think I missed a couple days last year. Quick question – is the Jubilee Book discussion via Twitter only? Oh and I took your advice and started a blog this week! We’ll see how it goes!
It’s just quick discussion on Twitter at the end of the week, however there will be an in -depth live discussion at the end of the month on Google Hangout.
