Writing & Publishing While Black: A Panel

Black authors face special challenges in the publishing world, from blatant racism to microaggressions to dealing with the expectations of the publishing business, which is by and large centered in whiteness. Join us for a webinar featuring a panel discussion by published Black writers. Learn how you can succeed in writing and publishing while Black. The evening’s panelists are Claudia Love Mair, Crystal Wilkinson, makalani bandele, Tracey Michae’l Lewis-Giggetts, Angela Jackson-Brown, and Frank X Walker. The panel will be moderated by Neil Chethik, Executive Director of the Carnegie Center.
