Congressional Black Caucus Author Pavilion

I was excited to be a panelist at this year's Congressional Black Caucus Author Pavilion. 

The topic of the panel was "The Black Writer's Responsibility to the Black Community: The Power of Words." Fellow panelists were actor turned author Isaiah Washington, best-selling authors Tayari Jones and Tananarive Due and author/professors Dr. Carla Peterson and Dr. Lawrence Jackson. The panel was moderated by poet and author Kwame Alexander.

It was a lively conversation about the value, influence and critical role that Black writers play in telling the story of mankind. I can honestly say that (for once) I was not the most talkative person in the bunch!

The Author Pavilion is part of the Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Conference, an annual event that hosts over 12,000 people who attend more than 100 policy forums in our nation's capitol.
