The Other Black Girl

The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris is a razor-sharp comedy that tips the balance into horror, focusing its satire on the overwhelming whiteness of the publishing industry. Nella Rogers is an editorial assistant at esteemed publishing house Wagner Books--and also the only Black person on staff. When Wagner hires Hazel-May McCall, another young Black woman, Nella is thrilled. But, when soon becomes clear that someone on staff is trying to oust Nella from the company, events take a surprising turn.
