Celebrating Black NC Writers!

Super excited that today was the deadline for the first Jacobs/Jones African American Literary Prize that I help to start through the NC Writers Network! Can’t wait to hear about the winner!

Read the founding story here (via WS Chronicle).

BIG THANKS to Michele Berger and Ed Southern of NCWN as well as founding donors Carol Brown Alan, MD; E. Patrick Johnson, PhD; and Reggie Shuford, JD.!

Lonnie Holley

Enjoyed Lonnie Holley exhibition at SECCA today. Was like a found object + civil rights lesson mashup.

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! I’ve decided to forgo more popular (but compromised) platforms and start anew. Kinda like when Oprah stopped broadcasting junk tv and found her best self. Hope you like it here. 😊
