Following up on black women and protection: I’ll be on NPR today

My Target Market piece about black women and guns, which I originally wrote for Bitch Magazine, has started getting some attention this month. It surprised me (is July a big shooting month?) but I’m really excited about it, so that’s no complaint.

The UTNE Reader republished the piece in its July/August issue. It’s a shorter version of the original piece, which was close to 4,000 words.

Then Andrew Sullivan, a popular blogger at The Daily Beast (who I have enjoyed reading since he was at the Atlantic) linked to that story last night.

I’ll be talking on New Hampshire Public Radio in a few minutes about the piece. You can listen on the web, if you have time. I think they’ll have a sound file I can share with folks, and I can post that too.

I’ve also been working on the book and will post another excerpt tomorrow. Did somebody say something about summer vacation?

  1. Don’t get NPR where I’m at but I hope it went well and you didn’t shoot yourself in the foot. Ha, ha…couldn’t resist, sorry-o! I’m sure you did great.
