I'm in and out for much of it, so I've recruited some help. Most of you guys know Dwayne Betts poet and author of the memoir A Question of Freedom. You also may know Shani Hilton from my constant links to her work over at Postbourgie. And lastly, there's my good friend Jelani Cobb author of The Devil And Dave Chappelle and his latest The Substance of Hope. Jelani is just back from Russia (I think I referenced a conversation with him in an earlier post) and will gladly talk about his time in Moscow, and his new book.


I'll still be posting. Just bringing in some ringers.
