Series Sunday: 100 Real-Life Tales of Black Girl Magic

(Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is 100 Real-Life Tales of Black Girl Magic, a book in the Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls series edited by Lilly Workneh. One hundred (100) barrier-breaking Black women and girls are showcased in the spirit of Black Girl Magic. It begins with a foreword by CaShawn Thompson, originator of the hashtag #BlackGirlMagic. Over 60 Black authors, illustrators, and editors collaborate on incredible stories from the past and present.

This series launched in 2016 and I am just having the pleasure of reading an installment. It is very inspiring and powerful to read about Black entrepreneurs, poets, activists, artists, filmmakers, politicians, sports figures and more. This book introduced me to quite a few that really are Black Girl Magic—a phrase to uplift and praise the accomplishments of Black women. 

Highly recommend for good night stories to yourself or to the little magical girl in your life.

Happy Early Pub Day! 100 Real-Life Tales of Black Girl Magic will be available Tuesday, September 28.
