Dee says it in her own words far better than I can, and gave me permission to share them with you:
“Every time Black History Month rolls around, there is a lot of discussion about the negative aspects of being in the black end of the literary pool. While such discussion is worthwhile, I wanted to accentuate the joys of reading/writing/whatever while black. Thus, Vibrant Voices was created on my blog. Several folks are lined up to guest blog on their positive experiences being in this industry. Today’s post is by poet and aspiring novelist Pittershawn Palmer. Tomorrow’s post is by L.A. Banks. Others are due to follow.
