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.
