Episode 116: Mariama J. Lockington

Today’s phenomenal guest you NEED to hear from is Mariama J. Lockington, author of For Black Girls Like Me (which releases this month on July 30, 2019). We talk about her experiences growing up as a transracial adoptee, how writing was always one of her passions, and Sweet Valley High may have come up. I can’t wait for you to hear this interview. It’s one of our favourites and I promise you’re going to want to order For Black Girls Like Me immediately!
