Why is reading diversely important?
Reading novels by authors of color is important because it provides a platform for underrepresented voices and perspectives to be heard and recognized. Literature has the power to shape our understanding of the world and our place in it, and when we limit ourselves to a narrow range of perspectives, we miss out on the richness and diversity of human experiences.
Additionally, reading novels by authors of color helps challenge and dismantle stereotypes and biases often perpetuated in mainstream media. By exposing ourselves to diverse perspectives, we can gain a more nuanced understanding of different cultures, histories, and identities.
