Today I was reminded that there was a Black silk weaver in Tudor England with one of the greatest names in history and I had to share it with y'all again. pic.twitter.com/m6cTiXHRak

GIVE ME HISTORICAL FICTION THAT DOES NOT ERASE BLACK PEOPLE OR ANY POC.

I will continue to say that Belle is one of my favorite movies (and yes I did read the nonfic book), and I want fiction like it.

Do Black writers know that everything we create doesn’t have to be about our trauma? I don’t wanna see another get out the hood, police brutality, abusive relationship, segregation, or slavery story. We deal with that shit every day. TF I WANNA WATCH THAT IN MY FREE TIME FOR

This is why I keep asking for the stories that feature POC and more specifically black teens and adults in happy situations like falling in love, figuring out who they are, having great friendships because the world is already hard enough for us as it is. #MSWL

As always, I would love any of my #MSWL items to have POC protags whether Asian, Middle Eastern, African, Caribbean, Latinx, Native, etc...
