Every day, Americans are engaged in prolific conversations about the current tenor and tone of race relations in our country. In this climate, the critical need for the voices of black storytellers transcends the fundamental need for diversity.
Stories that tell the inherent truth about the black experience, the contributions of African-Americans, the nuances and richness of people of the African diaspora, are not simply tools for diversity, but essential to the survival of American culture.
