HOW DID THE PEOPLE OF COLOR IN PUBLISHING GROUP START?

On August 7, 2016, Patrice Caldwell founded Young Publishing Professionals of Color which later became known as People of Color in Publishing.

The group was launched after Patrice was contacted by Jalissa Corrie, asking how to get better involved within the book publishing industry, in particular how to connect with more professionals of color. After seeing no such group, Patrice started this organization–first via a closed Facebook group. The group later expanded to include 6 subcommittees, chaired by a Planning Committee–you can learn more about it here--comprised of 12 members, including Patrice.

CAN I JOIN YOUR CLOSED FACEBOOK GROUP?

Yes, but only if you are a person of color working within or interested in working within the book publishing industry. You can join here and will be prompted to answer questions about your interest.
