Somehow I missed this announcement from February but I’m still super excited! Congrats to Barbara Johnson-Davis, 2020 recipient of the Jacobs/Jones African American Literary Prize. I had the idea for the prize in 2017, so I’m happy to see it carry on!
Many thanks to the NC Writers Network, Bridgette Lacy (final judge), UNC Creative Writing Program, and our donors (C. Alan, S. Brown, B. Bryson, J. & T. Davy-Mendez, R. Eppley, E.P. Johnson, J. Sadusky, E. Safrit, R. Shuford)!
