Expert Extra #11: Dr. Stephanie Andrea Allen on the difference between Black and POC, black lesbian writers, and why we need to work harder at finding these voices

September 8, 2017

This week's Expert Extra features Dr. Stephanie Andrea Allen, a native Southerner and out Black lesbian writer, scholar, editor of Lez Talk: A Collection of Black Lesbian Short Fiction and Solace: Writing Refuge, and LGBTQ Women of Color, and the founder of BLF Press, an independent Black feminist press dedicated to amplifying the work of women of color. She helps us understand the difference between "Black" and "Person of Color" and how being Black in America is different from being any other POC, the importance of Black lesbian voices, and why we all need to work harder to locate and listen to these voices, along with some reading recommendations.
