New Essay At Dame Magazine

This month I found out that my son’s preschool Ruth Staples threw away his inhaler to cap off a year of racism, gender discrimination and bullying. I have withdrawn him from that preschool, obviously. I try to write about that, and other racism my son has experienced for Dame Magazine here.

New Piece Up at The Root

For The Root, I write my annual year-end round up of 16 wonderful books published by black authors in 2017. Others great ones I would have loved to include are Bunk, by Kevin Young, The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin, Ordinary Beast by Nicole Sealey, I’m So Fine, A List of Famous Men & What I Had On by Khadijah Queen, & Lower Ed by Tracey Clayton…but don’t worry, I’m showing some love for those books elsewhere soon soon.
