Tomorrow, the African American Literary Awards powers into its 7th year in Harlem!
The show has become an anticipated and highly regarded event by publishing houses, authors and book lovers. Authors are celebrated in 25 different categories ranging from Cookbook to Historical Fiction to Breakout Author of the Year.
This year, the event will be hosted by actress Napiera Groves and will honor the following literary luminaries: New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey, radio host Dr. Michael Eric Dyson (above), Grammy-nominated rapper NAS, Danyel Smith (EIC of Billboard), and Elliot Wilson (EIC of Rap Radar).
