Read Fresh New Voices of American Literature 

I am proud that my new story, "Talladega 1925," takes its place in this just-released issue of Chicago Quarterly Review, #33. Edited by National Book Award-winning novelist Charles Johnson, this Anthology of Black American Literature includes works by twenty-seven leading poets, story-tellers, essayists, and artists. My short story offers a double-edged memoir fashioned as fiction, weaving together family tales and old-style Southern suspense.
