Ford Foundation Fellows celebration

Writing Living with Lynching in a way that made me proud would not have been possible without support from the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and the Ford Foundation.  Being a Ford Foundation fellow has especially changed my life (as I say in the acknowledgments section of the book).  This amazing program just celebrated 50 years of awarding fellowships, and Henry Louis Gates, Jr gave the keynote at the celebration.  Nice memento! 9/20/2012

*Living with Lynching* on KINDLE!

A pleasant surprise!  Many have asked about my book's availability on KINDLE and Nook, so I've kept asking my press for update.  The only answer was that there was a delay.  I never understood exactly what the issue was, and I was beginning to think that it may never go digital.  Well, I just happened to look at the Amazon page and it's available.  Who knows.  The same thing might happen with Nook someday soon.  But this is great news!  Check it out here.
