S4/ Ep1: Everything Inside with Edwidge Danticat
June is #ReadCaribbean month and I'm here for the literary celebration! With novelist, writer, activist Edwidge Danticat as my guest for this Season 4 opener, we share stories of the past even as we discuss the now. We talk about storytelling alongside Black-girl-motherhood in 2021. We discuss memory and migration stories. We discuss the arc of her writing, hope, Haiti, Jamaica, Jamaica Kincaid’s “Girl” (1978), Charles Mingus’ “Haitian Fight Song” (1957), a little Shabba Ranks, and Everything Inside (2019) right back to Breath, Eyes, Memory (1994). Tune in. This is For Posterity.
