Author Zakiya Dalila Harris alights at Greenlight to launch her debut novel The Other Black Girl, a whip-smart thriller and crackling social commentary on the trials of being a Black woman in an overwhelmingly white industry. Harris talks with Brit Bennett (bestselling author of The Mothers and The Vanishing Half) about navigating the whiteness of the publishing industry, crafting manifold timelines and perspectives, the real-life experiences that inform the story, and Bennett’s and Harris’s shared hopes and concerns regarding the future of recent movements in anti-racism and diversity.
