“I write to breathe life back into memory to remind African Americans of our rich and textured history. I also see myself as a 'root,' and for me the 'fierce winds' include the marginalization--the downright segregation--of literature written by people of color.”
“Legacies are delicate things. They must be tended to as one would tend an orchid so that it will continue to flourish and provide beautiful blooms. The legacy of African-American literature has been neglected, the works of brilliant writers both published and aspiring--ignored. But I believe that the tides are about to change.”
