Join Me The Black Blogger For February's Black Author Focus Part One

February 2018 the month of Celebrating Famous Black Authors:


I will be reading the following excerpts beginning February 1, 2018, and running until February 14, 2018. The recorded video excerpts will appear each morning on my blog as part of The Black Blogger’s celebration of Black History Month. In 2017 I celebrated famous black poets during the month of February.  So I decided to go this route in 2018. Please remember this will not interfere with my Sunday through Friday evening sessions of “The Blackman Read Aloud Hour” sessions on Facebook Live.
