Some of you who started the MFA program the same time as me may remember when, in an online workshop, I submitted an essay to be ripped apart titled, "What Happened to My History." In the essay, I talk about how I failed as an African-American to teach my younger son about our history. Well, I'm happy to report that the essay was published in the Aug. 8 edition of Rise Up magazine, a magazine insert for Sunday papers across the country.
