Black Indian, searing and raw, is beautifully rendered and rippling with family dysfunction, secrets, deaths, drunks, and old resentments. Shonda Buchanan's memoir is an inspiring story that explores her family's legacy of being African Americans with American Indian roots and how they dealt with not just society's ostracization but the consequences of this dual inheritance.
About the presenter: Pushcart Prize nominee, a USC Los Angeles Institute for the Humanities Fellow and a Department of Cultural Affairs City of Los Angeles (COLA) Master Artist Fellow, Shonda Buchanan is the author of five books, including the award-winning memoir, Black Indian. Shonda is the newest faculty member of the low residency MFA Program at Alma College. For more information about the program and the author, go to https://lclibrary.libcal.com/event/9883286.
