BOOKMARK: Walter Mosley

In our ongoing video series Bookmark, The Root talks to authors to find out the personal stories behind their talked-about books. Here, Walter Mosley talks about life after Easy Rawlins, the critically acclaimed hero of his noirish crime series. The novelist talks about the shift from looking at the black-and-white 1950s-era Los Angeles to the murkier present state of American race relations.
