The Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College, CUNY (CBL), will present the 16th National Black Writers Conference from March 30 to April 2, 2022. Writers, scholars, literary professionals, students, and the public will gather virtually to participate in and listen to roundtables and panels on the conference theme, “The Beautiful Struggle: Black Writers Lighting the Way.”


Dear Troy,

The Center for Black Literature and The African American Children’s Book Project are two intuitions that have formed mutually beneficial partnerships with AALBC which have lasted almost two decades!

The African American Children’s Book Project’s African American Children’s Book Fair (February 5, 2022), now in its 30th year; and the National Black Writers Conference (March 31, 2022), started in 1986, and run by the Center for Black Literature; are the premier events of their kind in the United States. Everyone in this country should know about these events; please help spread the word.

As always, you are why we’ve been able to make AALBC the premier online platform for books by, or about, people of African descent. Your paid subscription, book purchases, suggestions, engagement on the site, commenting, social sharing, and advertisements helps support AALBC’s mission.

Peace and Love,
Troy Johnson
Founder & Webmaster, AALBC.com
