African American authors including myself have our literary giants to thank! We need to remember that we have African American Literature,Caribbean Literature and African American Woman Writers.

Other ethnic groups have not come as far we, African Americans, have in terms of publishing books in poetry, memoir and fiction. Asians have not come as far as us and Hispanics haven’t either. Indians are starting to create a small presence in book publishing. Books written by multiracial authors that may not define as one race or another are doing well too. I think that’s cool too.
