To be a black girl in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, is to always be in wonder and waiting.

Black girls are central to why I started the Tayé Foster Bradshaw Bookshelf and the Hurston & Hughes Literary Circle. It was the expectation of my own daughters and how they would see themselves in academy, society, and individually.

This call for papers is one of the first to put a global perspective and develop a diasporian dialogue about growing up black, and girl, in spaces where race, gender, and identity are often questioned.

I am looking forward to attending.
