Published by Medgar Evers College and Third World Press in Chicago, MEDITATIONS AND ASCENSIONS edited by Brenda M. Greene and Fred Beauford focuses on the literary panels held in Brooklyn at the 2006 National Black Writers Conference. I was honored to appear on the Speculative Fiction panel with Samuel R. Delany, Tananarive Due, and Walter Mosley. Our panel was moderated by Robert Reid-Pharr and was dedicated in memory of Octavia E. Butler. Needless to say it was a great discussion, and I was thrilled to meet Mrs. Myrlie Evers-Williams and her daughter, Reena.
