I published "Shout Outs" back in February with the Nervous Break Down. It's an essay that talks about going to a majority white state university in the late 80s. In the dorm where I was an RA, someone lit a cross on the door of two black students. The nonfiction editor at NBD, Chelsey Clammer, and I had some frank conversations about the piece. She almost decided against it. I'm glad she published it. In light of recent events in Virginia, I thought I'd post it here. It might be worth another look.
