The novelist Attica Locke and Erica R. Edwards, an author and English professor at UC RIverside, join the Aloud series for a conversation about African American literature.

From the Aloud website:

Locke, whose new novel "The Cutting Season" is set at a Louisiana plantation re-purposed for weddings and Civil War reenactments, joins Edwards ("Charisma and the Fictions of Black Leadership") to explore how African American literature, rooted in stories of struggle and dispossession and overcoming all odds, has been affected by the same racial progress that has culminated in the first African American presidency.
