Madame Noire Attends the African American Literary Awards
There are tons of award shows devoted to honoring musicians and actors but the African American Literary Awards are the only awards that take the time out to highlight the accomplishments of black writers. The awards were created by Yvette Hayward, a public relations executive who worked extensively with black authors. Now in its 7th year the show draws some pretty big names. Madame Noire attended the show and spoke with several special guests.
