Post #7: Diversity 101

Ran across this post on Justina Ireland’s blog while looking for an #OwnVoice stories blog post. Still haven’t found that, but this is a nice little primer for those who may not think diversity in media is all that important. Or at least coalesces into one post some of the main talking points for those of us who agree, but maybe don’t understand the whole picture.

Justina is a YA writer of color. And a damn fine one too. Her book PROMISE OF SHADOWS has been one of my favorite reads this year.

**And remember, just like in nature, let’s leave the blog as we found out. No comments. Or at least no negative comments. Let’s not leave our trash behind. Thanks.**
