It is essential to critically assess the literature we consume and enjoy because of its ability to influence our beliefs and societal values.

Xolo Book Review is not your typical book review. Using the guiding questions below, each Xolo Book Review analyzes a book through a decolonized lens. The books we review earn a 1-5 rating on the Xolo Scale, determining how well it represents and celebrates BIPOC experiences.

Our Guiding Questions:

  • To what extent are there BIPOC leading characters or perspectives?

  • How well does the author avoid writing BIPOC experiences through the white gaze?

  • To what extent does the author challenge white-centered beliefs?

  • How well does the book explore nuances between intersectional identities?
