In Response To: Death of Author E. Lynn Harris ()
I appreciate your comments about E. Lynn Harris. The words on your blog are filled with such compassion and deep appreciation for Harris.
I read "Invisible Life" and discussed it with some of my gay friends. They all said that Invisible Life was a story that should be read by everyone, not just Blacks, or black homosexuals.
When Harris wrote "Say A Little Prayer" which centered on Black Churches and Homophobia, it created an even greater furor in the black community.
Below is a link to interviews with E. Lynn Harris on NPR.
Midway down on the left, are other interviews including his thoughts on “Say A Little Prayer”.
Thanks again Dera, for reminding us that we’ve lost a great writer.
