Kim Johnson in Conversation with Black Cultural Library Advocates

Kim Johnson’s debut novel, This Is My America, has been described as a cross between The Hate U Give and Just Mercy. Join Carla Davis and Ebonee Bell, members of Multnomah County Library‚Äôs Black Cultural Library Advocates team, as they chat with Ms. Johnson about first novels, love triangles, and how teens and young adults can advance antiracism and social justice. More about the book: This Is My America tells the story of 17-year-old Tracy Beaumont, who is in a race against time to prove her imprisoned father’s innocence and save him from death row. Then the unthinkable happens and the police accuse Tracy’s talented older brother, Jamal, of a horrible crime.
