SHOW NOTES:
Romance novels usually conjure images of blonde Fabio wannabees and pale, busty princesses. But Brittany recently discovered a steamy, sensual world of romance novels that center Black women. What can these books offer Black women that other media can’t? Brittany talks to Bim Adewunmi and Nichole Perkins of the podcast Thirst Aid Kit and NYT best selling author, Jasmine Guillory, to find out.
