(38) Interview with Faye Childs

"2.5 million dollars was made in result of books being listed in the Blackboard list... More authors appeared in the New York Times because of the Blackboard list."

Marketing consultant, Faye Childs wears many titles including champion for black literature, book author, founder and president of the famous BlackBoard African-American Bestsellers List that appeared in hundreds of newspapers and magazines but was most attributed to ABA's Bookselling This Week and Essence magazine for many years. She leans in to share her story and explains why black authorship is necessary and needed.
