Here at The Root we’ve always loved, praised, and centered Black literature in the broader conversation. Each week host Maiysha Kai sits down with an author we love to talk about their work, what inspires them, and what they hope to contribute to the culture at large. Guests so far include Nikole Hannah Jones, Brittney Cooper, Stacey Abrams, Ibram X. Kendi, Ijeoma Oluo, Morgan Jerkins, and Claudia Rankine.
This week we're chatting with the very talented writing duo, Maika and Maritza Moulite. Listen as the Moulites speak with Danielle and Maiysha about their co-writing process, the inspiration for their first young adult novel, Dear Haiti, Love Alaine, and the research that went into their latest book, One of the Good Ones.
