Back in February I was invited by New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer to be one of four honorees at the yearly Black History Month celebration hosted by his office. This event is usually held in person, but due to COVID-19, it was held online.
This week Van Bramer delivered the certificates to each of the honorees.
Thank you to my Council Member and neighbor Jimmy Van Bramer. I am grateful for this recognition.
I have a new review essay in the Los Angeles Review of Books on two recently published books by Chip Delany: In Search of Silence: The Journals of Samuel R. Delany, Volume I, 1957-1969 (Wesleyan University Press, 2017) and Voyage, Orestes! (Bamberger Books, 2019).
