The first international literary awards ceremony for Black unsung heroes.

The Indie Author Legacy Awards® is the first and only of its kind to honor Black impact-centered writers who serve as unsung heroes without our communities.

Presented by Publish Your Gift®, this monumental event was designed to specifically celebrate non-fiction literacy geared towards the promotion of social awareness, education and personal transformation.

Our mission is to highlight the efforts of independent authors who use their gift of writing as a tool to positively impact others through community engagement, business ownership and generation legacy-building.

“It’s important that we recognize humanities greatest asset–our people–the ones who connect us all through their transformational stories, experiences, and passion for serving others. You are worthy to be celebrated now and forever.”
