The Black Ladies Brunch Collective (BLBC) was founded in 2014 in Washington, D.C. They are a group of black women poets whose aim is to lift up, promote and inspire the voices of black women –
who have been, as a population, historically marginalized and silenced. They recognize the artistic work of black women, and encourage and foster collaboration between them.

BLBC serve the artistic community as a whole, but more specifically aim to inspire minority/under-privileged/under-represented/women of colour through their words. Their poetry collective hopes to positively impact minority women all over the globe and reaffirm the woman’s voice in the literary world.
