From the left, that’s Cornelius Fortune, Karen Love, and Yours Truly in the green room at Detroit Public TV in Wixom on Thursday morning before we head off to the set of American Black Journal with host  Stephen Henderson. Karen was there supporting her friends who were doing a segment on Jackets for Jobs, an extremely worthy program.

Cornelius and I were there to talk about the relationship between African Americans and science fiction, plus to promote our upcoming April 18 literary event which I’m thinking should be entitled “Sci Fi in Living Color” where we will discuss this same topic at more length in a small panel discussion which will also include Dr. Robert McTyre, who also happens to be Cornelius’ father. The event, which will be on a Saturday afternoon, will be at  Pages Bookshop, owned by my friend Susan Connelly Murphy and will last from 3-4:30. I will also be available to sign two of my books, “The Mayonnaise Murders, Part 1” and “The Mayonnaise Murders, Part 2”. Pages is located at 19560 Grand River Avenue, Detroit, MI 48223. I really hope to see as many of you there as can come. We’ll have a good time.

It was a great and unexpected reunion with Karen, my good friend who also used to be my boss at The Michigan Chronicle when I worked there as Senior Editor a decade ago. That’s also where I met Cornelius.

This episode will be broadcast on Sunday, April 12 at 12:30 p.m. on Channel 56, and will be re-broadcast that evening at 6:30 p.m.on the station’s second digital (World) Channel: 56.2. The program will air again on Wednesday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. on Ch. 56 . . . and Saturday, April 18 at 5:30 p.m.

Plus, the program will be posted online for about 3 months at:
