Race and Historical Romance, or: The Duke is Black, Now Deal With It. (Press This! by Talia Hibbert)

Read more about the new Netflix Bridgerton series coming later this year based on Julia Quinn’s series.  Here are the cast and an interesting article, commenting on the casting versus reality in the historical romance genre. Talia Hibbert makes a good point.  Read below.

“No-one cares that the historical romance genre is built on a throne of lies, because it’s bloody romance! The clue is in the name! These! Stories! Are! Romanticised! They are, like all fiction, mere constructs of reality based on the author’s perception of their audience’s desires. And that’s okay! Except, apparently, when it comes to people of colour.”
