Rosetta Press is committed to publishing books that reveal, explore, and foster a Black feminist vision of the world.
As stated in the 1977 manifesta of the Combahee River Collective:
“Above all else, our politics initially sprang from the shared belief that Black women are inherently valuable, that our liberation is a necessity not as an adjunct to somebody else’s but because of our need as human persons for autonomy…We realize that the only people who care enough about us to work consistently for our liberation are us. Our politics evolve from a healthy love for ourselves, our sisters and our community which allows us to continue our struggle and work.”
Rosetta Press publishes books for children with the following objectives:
- To generate culturally relevant stories that center children who have been marginalized, misrepresented, and/or rendered invisible in children’s literature.
- To produce affordable, high-quality books so that families—regardless of income—can build home libraries that will enhance their children’s academic success.
- To produce a steady supply of compelling, diverse stories that will nourish the imagination and excite even reluctant readers.
All Rosetta Press titles are available from CreateSpace, Amazon, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, and bookstores everywhere, including nonprofit Teaching for Change. E-books are available in the Kindle Store. Rosetta Press books may be purchased in Canadian bookstores and online at Amazon.ca.
