As part of the recent Black History Month celebration, Rolling Out and Penguin Random House launched #AmplifyBlackStories, a content partnership that highlights the works of a variety of authors and multi-generational writers as well as the responses of faith-based readers.

“As our content and media partner, Rolling Out has developed a full slate of programming throughout the year,” Anthony Key, director of multicultural marketing at Penguin Random House, said in a statement announcing the partnership. “Our collaboration will allow us to propel the awareness of Black literary excellence and introduce more stories by Black authors to a diverse group of readers.”

Munson Steed, Rolling Out CEO, said the partnership and collaboration will promote cultural understanding by amplifying Black storytelling and Black voices.

“We are on a mission to celebrate Black authors, both familiar and new, who are helping to tell a more complete cultural story –– from social justice and betterment to romance and sci-fi,” Steed said.
