Open House Was Dope!
Well Open House was dope! Do I sound strange saying that? LOL Trying to connect with the young people who came out in full support last night. There were many highlights, but one I want to mention is the buzz around Sophia Quintero aka Black Artemis. The writer donated two of her books, Burn and Picture Me Rollin’. My apology to readers who were disappointed to learn the books won’t be available for check out till Saturday. I had just received them, but I wanted to let folks know we’re listening to what they want to read. Glad to hear we got it right.
According to Speak Out!, the hip hop, diva writer is an “Ivy-league homegirl… writier, activist, educator, speaker and comedienne. Born into a working-class Dominican-Puerto Rican family in the Bronx where she still resides, she earned a BA in history-sociology from Columbia University in 1990 and her MPA from the university's School of International and Public Affairs in 1992.
Expect to hear more about Black Artemis at Color Online. We’re hoping with a little pleading and good fortune, we’ll have her visit with us in Detroit.
