ANNOUNCING THE 2020 LEGACY AWARDS NOMINEES!
The 2020 Hurston/Wright Legacy Awards continue the foundation’s tradition of recognizing literary excellence by Black writers from the United States and around the world. The evening will culminate in the announcement of the winners of the juried awards for books by Black authors published in 2019 in the categories of debut fiction, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. More than 100 books were submitted by publishers and self-published authors. The judges – all Legacy Award Honorees in previous years – worked independently of the foundation to evaluate the books for artistic excellence and contribution to the literary canon. Though our community cannot come together in person for the 2020 Legacy Awards, we have creatively reimagined our signature event. We invite you to join us virtually from the comfort of your homes and celebrate Black literary excellence!
