The Blackademic Life – Coming soon!

It’s really real now. Thank you to all of you who have pre-ordered the book and waited patiently for the roll-out. Pre-ordered copies should start shipping by the end of the week. Also, it looks like the Kindle price has been temporarily lowered, so you should jump on that if you feel so inclined.

I’ll be reading at McNally Jackson Books in SoHo on November 14, with my CUNY colleague Dr. Debarati Biswas. Books will be available at the reading!  RSVP here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-blackademic-life-tickets-64987959737 

 

Paule Marshall’s “Brooklyn” and the #MeToo Movement

In my latest post for Black Perspectives I wrote about teaching Paule Marshall’s short story “Brooklyn” and how the story anticipates current conversations on sexual harassment and abuse. Special thanks go out to my City Tech students for reading, thinking through, and writing about this story in our classes last semester. “Paule Marshall’s “Brooklyn” and the #MeToo Movement.”
