2011 African American Literary Awards Show

2011 African American Literary Awards Show

September 22, 2011 - The 7th Annual African American Literary Awards Show was a blast. We were honored to be in the presence of Literary Excellence, amongst the likes of Literary Kings and Queens; Carol Mackey, Editor-in-Chief of Black Expressions Book Club, ESSENCE Best Sellers K'Wan, and Pat G'orge Walker, the beautiful Dawn Michelle of Dream Relations, and Torrian Ferguson of Black Literature Magazine. Yvette Hayward of the African American Literary Award Show gave a tearful and heartfelt thanks to all of the attendees and Dr. Michael Eric Dyson was awe-inspiring. We were afforded the wonderful opportunity to rub elbows with the greats, Kimberla Lawson Roby and ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Brenda Jackson was even in the house. A lovely event and an experience we won't soon forget!
