Two sites I admire for the purpose they have chosen to pursue are Reads for Pleasure and Color Online. These blogs like White People Meet Black Authors are doing their best to bring to light books written by people of color. It may not seem like a big deal to some people, but segregation in bookstores and whitewashing in the publishing industry (The Book Smugglers did a great post on this Cover Matters-on Whitewashing) is devastating to the authors of color and a loss to the reading community. We have to realize books as well as life is written in more than black and white.
