INDIANAPOLIS _ I walked into the Indianapolis Central Library downtown, and my jaw dropped. It is one of the most amazing spaces I’ve ever seen. But I hadn’t seen anything yet.
Then I entered the Center for Black Literature & Culture, which is housed in the library’s center and was humbled that it would be the space for Friday night’s latest outing to read from “The Burden” and discuss how we can all get along.
I am eternally grateful to A’Lelia Bundles and Tami Winfrey Harris for contributing to the book and joining me on the road in support of it. And what a force of nature CBLC director Nichelle Hayes and Expressions book seller Donna Stokes-Lucas are. The event could not have been better, what with a standing-room only crowd and Donna selling out of books.
