“Our lives preserved. How it was; and how it be. Passing along in the relay. That is what I work to do: to produce stories that save our lives.”
-Toni Cade Bambara
Toni Cade Bambara (1939–1995) was a writer, social activist, educator, feminist, and filmmaker. The legacy of her contributions to the African-American literary canon have rightfully earned her the distinguished reputation of being not only a storyteller but an amazing truth teller.
Invited Panelists: Farah Jasmine Griffin, Malaika Adero, Sonia Sanchez, Eugene Redmond and others!
