This is the question I keep asking myself. I have lived a non Christian spiritual life. Such is reflected in my work, but it only operates in the back ground not the forefront. Can we as writers, stem the tide which is destroying our black communities with similar writing--art projects? Can we hone our craft so such writing and art is a viable entertaining alternative to so many of us who are drawn to the self destructive skull duggery which corporate America and even our undeveloped brethren purposefully feed us as adult/children--borderline gratuitous porn, death and hustlin' culture, and our children who are left to their own devices?
