Launched in 2020, Lampblack is a nonprofit organization created by Black writers to support Black writers. Through its direct aid, online literary programming, and a magazine dedicated to the voices from the Black diaspora, Lampblack works to expand the reach of Black literature on the page and in the world. In 2023, Lampblack will debut the Lampblack Reading Series, a six-event program in Central Brooklyn that will showcase the poetry and prose of established and emerging Black writers.
