Black Writers Today
Frederick K. Foote, Jr.
Short Story Writer and Poet
Free Monthly meeting, 1-hour Zoom presentation
Saturday, July 18, 2020
1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
With all that is going on around us in this society and across the world right now (the death of George Floyd and others, the Black Lives Matter protest marches, and the whole issue of race relations–globally), it is particularly apropos to have a speaker who can offer our members some insight into the world-changing historic events happening right before our eyes–and on a massive, unheard-of scale.
Take a walk on the Black side and see the writing world from that perspective. Learn:
- Essential differences between blacks and whites in the US
- The impact of race on critical judgment
- The impact of capitalism on black art
- Language barriers in black writing
- Steps that can reduce obstacles between black and white writers
