I am co-editor of the anthology Slavery’s Descendants: Shared Legacies of Race and Reconciliation (Rutgers University, May 2019) and author of the memoir Finding Josephine, forthcoming from Putnam. My work has appeared in The New York Times, LitHub, More, Rumpus and Ebony among other publications and won awards from the National Association of Black Journalists and the Newswomen’s Club of New York.
Grants and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Sustainable Arts Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Hedgebrook have supported my work. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from New York University and live in New Jersey with my family.
