African American Writers: Portraits and Visions

The voice of a writer can be heard in words, and sometimes seen in the writer’s face. It is unusual to find both in a book in which the creator is both the author and the photographer. Lynda Koolish, our guest on this archive edition of Radio Curious, is a professor of African American literature at San Diego State University and an accomplished photographer. She is the author of a book entitled “African American Writers: Portraits and Visions” in which she reveals the visage of 59 African American writers along with a thumbnail biography and summation of each writer’s vision.

Lynda Koolish, Ph.D. recommends “Dien Cai Dau” and “Neon Vernacular” by Yusef Komunyakaa.

    As always, your showaare wonderful.

    This week Radio Curious had an exemplary interview on KNSJ 89.1 FM San Diego so good that we are recommending that every KNSJ producer should listen, learn & emulate the interview techniques.

    SDSU prof. of African American literature described the connection between Afro-centric/feminist writers, jazz & her iconic photographs of authors. Ever so powerful interview! Huge thanks We want to get in touch with Lynda!
