Sankofa Video Books and Cafe Reading

Many thanks to Haile and Shirikiana Gerima and the staff at Sankofa Video, Books and Cafe for organizing the “Strivers and Other Stories” reading held Saturday November 12. It was a wonderful intimate space in the shadows of Howard University across the street. I felt the warmth of the legacy of the African-American literary tradition surrounding me as a read excerpts from two stories.

Great questions from those in attendance. Some highlights:

  1. What is my favorite story?
  2. What’s the significance of the title?
  3. Are any other stories going to be made into a longer work?
  4. Are any characters based on me?

I’ve compiled answers to several of these questions in a Q&A.
