Books are an integral part of education, personal growth, and give us enjoyment and pleasure. Remarkably, publishing out ranks both movies and music in sales in the US and around the world. Publishing remains shockingly lacking in racial diversity (as shown in the graphs below). Our intention is to create awareness of this inequity and encourage publishers to eliminate bias and hire people of color. We believe this will result in more books from diverse perspectives for us to read.
