Curtain Call on Life
By Amy Schrader
"I understand that as a black person you are always representing the race, so to speak .... So what you have to do is try to write it as well as you can and hope that if you write the story well enough, people won't be offended. I think basically you need to write what you believe in."
"As writers we face no more formidable task than to bring children and adults together. We need to see the world clearly and to explain it clearly to children so that they, in turn, can explain it back to us without our adult compromises, and without our adult excuses. To do less is to abandon our talents, perhaps even our universe. If we're lucky, we might even get children and adults to trust each other again. If we're lucky."
