Diverse Voices: Interviews with Artists of Color

News, From My Desk


For many of us, reading or writing is a way to make sense of the world. In a favorite book, we might find a role model or a reflection of ourselves and our lives. We love to identify with characters. And, sometimes, when we are unable to find a character that we can relate to—or want others to know—we create our own. That is what authors Bernice Sims, M.S.W. ’82, Charles Rice-Gonzalez ’85 and alumna Jacqueline Woodson have done. In separate interviews, they spoke to AU VU about their art and the motivation behind it.
