MahoganyBooks African American Literature Blog publishes a variety of content including, but not limited to: book reviews, book summaries, author interviews, and critical analyses centered on books written for, by, about people of the African Diaspora. We also publish original essays that use literature to discuss, debate or analyze important issues (i.e. social justice, politics, economics, family life, spirituality, personal development) impacting African Americans. All submitted content should not exceed 1500 words.

Finally, we accept articles posted in other publications as long as the writer has the rights to them. The editor will decide the article’s title and the featured image.
