Black Culture is on a Continuum with Marita Golden
Show Notes

On this episode of Black & Published, Nikesha speaks Marita Golden, author of the novel, A Woman's Place, which was first published in 1986 and is now being re-released by McSweeney's. Marita is the author of six novels as wells as memoirs and other non-fiction works. She's also the co-founder of the Hurston/Wright Foundation and works with writers all over the world facilitating workshops to help them get their stories out.  

During our conversation, Marita discusses the ruthlessness she had in writing her memoir based on what she was living through, why we shouldn't look to mainstream (white) publishing as the place where the best of Black thought has been produced, and the charge she has for the next generation of your writers to carry on.
