If you don’t read the blog Black Girl Nerds, you should. Today, they’ve got an awesome article up by Lauren Frazier. It’s about why more black women should play tabletop RPGs. It’s a great article detailing some of the issues and benefits about joining a group where you are the minority.

“Unfortunately, the barrier entering tabletop RPGs can be quite high for Black women, when compared to video game RPGs. When you think of Dungeons and Dragons, most people picture a group of nerds who look something like the cast of The Big Bang Theory or the gang from Stranger Things huddled around a table in Mike’s basement.”
