Legacy Award Nominees

I had the pleasure of serving as one of the judges for this year's Hurston/Wright Legacy Awards. This is an award for black writers from around the world, so long as their book was published in the US.

There were some very good books in the mix - as there are every year. Some featured contemporary issues, some looked at history, many had truly international perspectives and settings.

The winners haven't been announced yet, but the nominees have.

You can check them out HERE.

Looking at the selection of titles I find it both disturbing and depressing that there is such a lack of black male writers, particularly novelists. It is as if a sizable voice has been silenced.

Your posting is very great.
Directory listing online had been a very popular search tool.
