About the Author
Ishmael Reed is the author of over twenty-five books including Mumbo Jumbo, Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down, Conjugating Hindi, Why No Confederate Statues in Mexico and most recently Malcolm and Me and Why the Black Hole Sings the Blues. He is also a publisher, television producer, songwriter, radio and television commentator, lecturer, and has long been devoted to exploring an alternative black aesthetic: the trickster tradition, or Neo-Hoodooism. A regular contributor to CounterPunch and founder of the Before Columbus Foundation, he taught at the University of California, Berkeley for over thirty years, retiring in 2005. Reed is the only person to be nominated for the National Book Award in two categories in the same year.
David Sadzin began using his voice to get attention in grade school, where his teacher thought he was awfully quiet until she gave him a paragraph to read out loud. After a few intense years on New York stages performing traditional and experimental theater and improv comedy, he is now comfortably settled in front of a mic in his home studio in Brooklyn, New York.
