Black Author’s Memoir on Overcoming Life’s Challenges
Tune in at 8 a.m. CST/9 a.m. EST Monday for KAZI Book Review contributor Evelyn Anderson’s interview with Benilde Little, author of a new memoir, WELCOME TO MY BREAKDOWN, on KAZI 88.7FM in Austin, Texas. Little is the nationally bestselling author of the novels GOOD HAIR and THE ITCH. WELCOME TO MY BREAKDOWN is about her journey caring for aging parents, raising children, being married, plunging to the depths of depression after the death of her mother and climbing her way out. Anderson interviewed Benilde about her process for writing the book, helping her children keep their sense of blackness while raising them in predominantly white neighborhoods and schools, and how she triumphed over depression.
