Our History


Books with Color was founded in 2020 by two Charlotte  authors who saw first hand that minority children were greatly underrepresented in children's literature. The mutual will to "be the change" and correct this social injustice led our founding  Authors to organize and partner  with more authors, supporters and friends to solve this problem together, one classroom and one book at a time.
