In Fall 2017, I'm teaching Contemporary Black Writers at BMCC. This is a Writing Intensive course designed for second-year community college students. The topics of the course include everything from genre to identity, intersectionality to nature poems. My hope is to demonstrate the diversity of voice within a community that is sometimes assumed to be narrow in content and expressive form. We are a varied and wonderous people. Please feel free to follow up with me during or after fall semester to find out how it went. This is the most excited I have ever been about planning and executing a course!
