Minorities in Publishing

The brain child of publishing professional Jenn Baker, Minorities in Publishing (MiP) is a podcast discussing diversity (or lack thereof) in the book publishing industry with other professionals working in-house as well as authors and those in the literary scene.

Jun 8, 2015

Jenn talks with VP/editorial director at a major children's book publisher and New York Times best-selling author Andrea Davis Pinkney. Andrea discusses her trajectory from working at Essence magazine to becoming one of the most well-known editors in publishing and how seeing the dearth of African American representation in books lead her to being a huge advocate in writing them as well as acquiring them.
