Highlighting The Best Work Of Black Writers

A new book series promises to highlight the best work of contemporary black authors.

That's the hope of professor Gerald Early, co-editor of Best African American Fiction and Best African American Essays. He says it's the first of what will become an annual collection.

Early — professor of English, African and African American Studies and American Culture Studies at Washington University in St.Louis — speaks with Tony Cox.
