Uncommon Ground: an interview with Beverly Jenkins

Excellent piece on the attitude of US publishing towards women (particularly genre romance) and towards race (meaning, anything that isn't white, writen by people who aren't white).
In the eternal sump of white historiography, wherein textbooks mostly teach African-American history as slavery and the Civil War and maybe throw in a couple sidebars on black historical figures, Jenkins aims to fill in an entire missing era but to do so in a way that isnít whitewashed, is entertaining to read and, unlike real life, has some heat and an HEA (happily ever after).
Full interview at Salon, following this link.
Also found at my blog and twitter (adult language, adult topics, not always safe for work)
Ignoring annoying blowhards everywhere, for a good long time
