Embark on a journey through the pages of resilience and resistance at the Blacklisted Banned Books Festival, a collaborative effort between Black Writers Weekend and the National Black Arts Festival. This groundbreaking celebration confronts a haunting legacy as, since Reconstruction, Black writings have been unjustly labeled as obscene and seditious.

This two-day event, unfolding on February 24th and 25th, invites over 2500 attendees to partake in moderated panels, book signings, and a vibrant book market, fostering awareness, education, and entertainment.
