Jessica Pryde is the editor of Black Love Matters, an incisive, intersectional essay anthology that celebrates and examines Black Romance, with contributions from Black readers and writers with varying interests and experiences in the worlds of Black love and romance. She is the cohost of the “When in Romance” podcast, is a contributing editor for Book Riot, and a librarian for a public library in Arizona.
In this program, Jessica will discuss many of the topics approached in the book regarding the way Black Love is depicted in novels, television shows, and films, including the history of Black romance, social justice and its role in romance novels, the positioning of Black indie romance authors, and more.
