Bombardier Announces Imprint for BIPOC Writers
Bombardier Books, a subsidiary of Post Hill Press, an independent publishing house based in Nashville, is launching Emancipation Books, an imprint that will focus on controversial and marginalized BIPOC writers.
The imprint will produce six to 10 titles per year. Its first book will be The 1776 Project from the Woodson Center, a collection of essays offering a counter narrative to the 1619 Project from the New York Times. Other forthcoming releases include Jason D. Hill’s What Do White Americans Owe Black People; Charles Love’s The Real Black Lives Matter Agenda; and Gabriel Nadales's Behind the Black Mask.
“As one of the very small number of black Americans in the publishing industry, as well as a conservative, I’ve always been concerned about the lack of diversity reflected within editorial boards across New York," said David S. Bernstein, founder of Bombardier Books. "We have made a concerted effort to publish a wide range of diverse voices and have proven that we value not only diversity of skin color, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, but most importantly, diversity of ideas.”
