On this day in 1891, the amazingly talented writer (and fellow Afro-Viking) Nella Larsen was born. Thinking of her today and giving thanks for her work and her life. It changed my life that I was able to honor her by installing a headstone on her grave in 2006. I hope one day I'll have the honor of seeing her novel Passing on the big screen (I co-wrote an adaptation). But I am so glad her memory lives on.
