In The West End

My new Children’s Book In the West End, just dropped here in Atlanta. The book follows an energetic, amazing little boy that ventures out with his Mom through the West End (the historic African-American neighborhood in Atlanta) to find healthy and tasty vegan food for his Grandma who has to change the way she eats because of her health.  The book is illustrated by Corretta Scott King award winning illustrator R. Gregory Christie.  The work was created as a commission for the Mayor’s Summer reading Club and will be distributed to 17,000 3-5 year olds in the Atlanta metro area. If you live in Atlanta, get your copy through the Mayor’s Sumer Reading Club. If you live, look for the national release of the work next year.

“When Malcolm X was Malcolm Little, and Roxbury was home”.

I met journalist James Sullivan 21 years ago when we were both making or way in San Francisco.  He wrote one of the first features on me in a major paper (SF Chronicle).  What a joy it was to reconnect with him all these years and projects later, and for him to write this feature on my latest work, Detroit Red.  We are the same people but very different (older, wiser?).  Thank you for writing this article in the Boston Globe and helping to make this play one of my most successful production ever. (Read article here).
