African Diaspora: New Dialogues

African Diaspora: New Dialogues: Season V will feature two authors from across the United States: Duriel E. Harris and Roger Reeves. WordSpace and SDCC launched the series in 2014. In outlining the series, WordSpace and South Dallas Cultural Center aimed to bring new literary voices to Dallas fans and to showcase the diversity of cultural offerings at the SDCC. The current series also represents the program’s success in bringing to Dallas distinguished writers of all backgrounds. The 2019 lineup was carefully selected to include a variety of voices from around the country. The visiting writers also visit local schools and universities to spend meaningful time with Dallas students.
