ABOUT REBECCA WALKER
I’m a writer, mom, speaker, cultural critic, editor, and all around intellectual mess-talker. I’m a multi-platform catalyst who tweets the VMAs live while reading a book on quantum physics, pondering the new Rick Owens collection, and posting articles about the Chinese penetration of Africa on Facebook.
WHEN I’M NOT COVETING COUTURE OR TRACKING THE CHANGES IN THE PUBLISHING INDUSTRY
I’m the author of five books including the bestselling Black White and Jewish and the ever controversial Baby Love, both memoirs dealing with race, gender, motherhood, and a bunch of other stuff relevant to the post-civil rights, third wave feminist, postmodern generation. I graduated at the top of my class from Yale and have a secret aversion to writing bios because they seem so, well, narcissistic. That said, I write books and teach writing workshops all over the world–the next one is in Maui in December and next year it’s SF, Buenos Aires and Nigeria. You’re invited. I also help other people write their books, pitch my own pilots to the networks, and tell my son repeatedly to brush his teeth.
Would you rather watch “I Love New York” or “Flavor of Love”? “Mad Men”
“Girlfriends,” “Living Single” or “Sex and the City”? Tough one. Am I embarrassing myself by saying “Gossip Girl”?
Who was your favorite character on “The Wire”? Why? Never seen it.
