This blog's title was inspired by Audre Lorde and I would soooo love to see some of these writers in person, some of them for the first time. But I have at least two prior commitments. Gonna try to at least attend and leave early if necessary.
Via Frank Leon Robert's Brooklyn Boy Blues:
Saturday, June 25th. Nuyorican Poets Cafe. 2PM.
Dont miss the hottest literary event of the summer.
"A BURST OF LIGHT: NEW DIRECTIONS IN BLACK GAY AND LESBIAN LITERATURE"
Ok, anyone who is not at this event can no longer speak to me! And I'm serious dammit! So mark those calendars NOW. RIGHT NOW.
Join me on Saturday, June 25th at the world famous Nuyorican Poets Cafe for the first big event of BLACK PRIDE NYC 2005, where I will be hosting an exciting discussion with JAMES EARL HARDY (author of the insanely popular 'B Boy Blues' series), STACEYANN CHIN (STAR of BROADWAY'S "DEF POETRY JAM") HANIFAH WALIDAH (Playwright, MC, and Musician) and ALPHONSO MORGAN (Cultural critic and author of the stellar new novel "Sons"). I will also be reading from my forthcoming book (that I co-edited with Pomo-Afro Homo's former member Marvin K. White).
Follow the above link for links to individual writers.
