A few weeks back, I taped an episode of Left of Black. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this show, this is the weekly webcast hosted by the fabulous and splendid Dr. Mark Anthony Neal (aka Dr. MAN) of Duke University and produced by the John Hope Franklin Center of International and Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke.
Guess what? Today, my episode of Left of Black is airing on Duke University’s UStream at 1:30PM EST! I’m so excited!
I’ll be talking about my Phillis Wheatley poetry project, The Age of Phillis—that’s when I make nice—and then, I’ll be talking about some more controversial subjects, like Slutwalk and Touré’s controversial article on Michael Vick, which I sliced and diced a while back on this blog. Y’all know me. I like to cause plenty trouble. (And you know you like it.)
You can catch the episode STREAMING TODAY at 1:30pm EST on the Duke University Ustream. Here’s the link.
In addition to me, Dr. MAN will be joined by E. Patrick Johnson, author of Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South. I’ve been meaning to read this book for a minute, so this is my opportunity to get a bit of a preview. I know I won’t be disappointed, because I’ve heard wonderful things about this timely, important book. And I’m a southerner, so I’m definitely interested in reading Sweet Tea.
So, join Dr. MAN, E. Patrick Johnson, and me TODAY at 1:30pm EST on Left of Black!
And if you aren’t following me (Honorée Fanonne Jeffers) on Twitter, you know you want to! Here I am.
