Inspired by the groundbreaking work of W. E. B. Du Bois, this beautiful collection brings together an amazing roster of Black creative voices to honor, celebrate, and foster Black excellence.

The New Brownies' Book reimagines the very first publication created for African American children in 1920 as a must-have anthology for a new generation. Expanding on the mission of the original periodical to inspire the hearts and minds of Black children across the country, esteemed scholar Karida Brown and award-winning artist Charly Palmer have gathered the work of more than 60 contemporary Black artists and writers.

The result is a book bursting with essays, poems, photographs, paintings, and short stories reflecting on the joy and depth of the Black experience - an immersive treasure trove that reminds readers of all ages that Black is brilliant, beautiful, and bold.
