Posted: February 6, 2011 by trggradio in Uncategorized


This is rare audio of writer, activist, filmmaker Toni Cade Bambara giving a talk at Hampshire College sometime before her death. She reads from her last novel, Those Bones are Not My Child, which was published posthumously. The book is a fictionalized portrait of the Atlanta Child Murders, which was the term given to the disappearance and mutilation of 40 children from 1979-1981. A Q&A follows the reading. Enjoy!
