Zora Neale Hurston: An Appreciation

One of the writers most dear to my heart is Zora Neale Hurston. As a black woman living in the early 1920s, Hurston was a powerful force; fighting against the grain of a dominantly sexist and racist society. This year for Black History Month, I wanted to share what Hurston means to me and why her work is essential to the American experience.

Celebrating Black Art!

This Black History Month, I wanted to take the time to celebrate the legendary, in his own words, Jean-Michael Basquiat. August 12th will mark the 30th anniversary of his untimely death. All February long Cavalier House Books will be featuring books on Basquiat in remembrance of his work and role in the critical and commercial rise of black American artists. For me, Basquiat is where many white Americans began to appreciate black expression without trying to exploit it. Elvis stole from Chuck Berry but no one's stolen from Basquiat, maybe no one can.
