Welcome, from my desk to yours. I'm the author or co-author of ten books, including Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years, the classic 1993 oral history adapted for Broadway and film. My topics include American history, forgotten stories, and elder wisdom. I'm a New York Times and Washington Post bestselling author and Peabody Award-winning journalist.

Photo of a bookshelf in my home office with several of my books. Yes, that's Bessie Delany in a 1923 photo. And, Abe Lincoln is holding up the books.
