Here is a List of 50 Black Writers in Toronto

Here is a list of 50 Black writers in Toronto. Some are household names in the Black Toronto community--well known in Canada, in Africa,  and the Caribbean. Most of us are embedded into a life of writing...eternally. Most of us will continue to write, and create, and document, and share...because it's simply what we love to do. We are telling our Black Canadian stories. We are recording history.

These are only 50 of many Black writers in Toronto: published, self-published, and aspiring. These 50 were selected for this particular list, because they all graciously registered/presented in our annual Book Expo between the years 2014 and 2018.

Connect to their profiles, get to know their individual stories, and discover their books. Order one or two...because many of these writers are changing lives with their words, intelligence, creativity, and inspiration. Support this passion. Encourage this practice. Do take a moment and listen to what they have to say.
