The discussion will center around the primary questions: 1) Who can best tell the story of people of color in literature? 2) Why is agency and authenticity important in the creation of works of fiction? There will also be ample time for questions. The panel will be moderated by Staci Drouillard and feature Michael Kleber-Diggs, Carol Miller, David Mura, Mona Susan Power and Michael Torres.
