Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Margo Jefferson
Growing up in the 1950s, Margo Jefferson was part of Chicago's black upper class. The daughter of a prominent doctor and his socialite wife, Jefferson inhabited a world of ambition, education and sophistication, a place she calls "Negroland."  In her award winning memoir, Jefferson describes the social pressures of her upbringing, as well as the sense of separation that it engendered. Her passionate memoir complicates the already fraught picture of the civil rights era, describing the painful and frustrating circumstances of an overlooked sector of American society.

Now a professor of writing at Columbia University School of the Arts, Jefferson won a Pulitzer for criticism during her years as a book and theater critic at The New York Times and associate editor at Newsweek. The author of On Michael Jackson, Jefferson in her second book turns her sharp eye on her own upbringing.

Dawn Davis, vice president and publisher of 37 INK, an imprint of Simon & Schuster's Atria Publishing Group, interviews Margo Jefferson.
