The Heat Is On!
SOF Radio kicks off an exciting new season of interviews with today’s newsmakers, focusing on the current events which inspired Sistas on Fire: A Newsical. In the first episode, I'll read selections, provide commentary, and answer your questions about my first novel, E-Males. The characters may not be real, but their issues are!
The focus will be on a character you haven't heard much about: the sassy, streetwise Johnesha. Johnesha is a composite of many of my previous students from the City Works program. She's representative of the best and the worst of young black womanhood, so why did I create this character if E-Males is about presenting positive imagery of African American women?
Listen in next week and find out!
