Interview With Lisa Moore Of RedBone Press

This is an interview I did with Lisa Moore at Sistahfest 2005. It has taken me a little time to get this interview up because, after Sistahfest, I was one hurting sistah and could not sit long to edit video. Now, back in the saddle again, I was finally able to edit this video for viewing.

Lisa talks about starting RedBone Press, and the many authors RedBone has published including Sharon Bridgforth, Samiya Bashir, Marvin K. White, she talks about B/GLAM, the book Spirited, G. Winston James, Ernest Hardy, republishing a book by Essex Hemphil and Joseph Beam, and a book by Ana-Maurine Lara, Erzulie's Skirt.
