rising voices


Centering Black voices. Supporting Black authors. Doing the work.


Rising Voices is a book club for those who are looking to deepen their anti-racism work by centering Black voices. Over the course of 6 weeks, join Femme Handbook for the first edition of Rising Voices as we prioritize reading books exclusively by Black authors.


We realize that, as non-Black women, it is our responsibility to be actively non-racist — so we are committed to reading and learning alongside others to understand our privilege in a world that makes it hard for Black lived experiences to be heard.


Rising Voices’ virtual discussions will be facilitated by Femme Handbook and Keosha Love, founder of Our Women’s Voices and Black and Vulnerable.


This book club is free to join. Books will not be provided by Femme Handbook, as we encourage you to financially invest in books written by Black authors. However, if you cannot afford a copy, please let us know in the form below— we are willing to provide you with one.

We will be reading The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.
