Kola Boof - Now Playing


My literary trinity is Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, and Gloria Naylor. I’ll soon have to make room for another queen on the throne, Kola Boof who counts Walker and Morrison among her favorites.
Ms. Boof is an award winning writer who writes for and about African women(including those of us diasporic daughters). I had an engaging conversation with @kolaboof on Twitter who graciously sent me signed copies of Nile River Woman, Long Train to the Redeeming Sin and flesh and the devil. Each copy with a different personalized note.
Listen to my rendering of her poem Now Playing from Every Little Bit Hurts (inside Nile River Woman).
