Danzy Senna’s debut novel, Caucasia, was the winner of the BOMC Stephen Crane Award for First Fiction and of a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. Her second novel, Symptomatic, continues to examine the complicated topics of race in America. Senna also writes essays on issues of race, identity, and gender. Gary Younge, the Alfred Knobler Journalism Fellow at The Nation Institute, is the New York correspondent for The Guardian and the author of No Place Like Home: A Black Briton’s Journey Through the Deep South and Stranger in a Strange Land: Travels in the Disunited States. He is also a contributor to The Nation.
