Episode 5: Colson Whitehead on History, Literary Theory, and Race Relations
Just after the release of “The Underground Railroad” in 2016, we had author Colson Whitehead in for one of our very first ScribdChats. The novel became an instant success, picked for Oprah’s Book Club, praised by President Obama, and then going on to win the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize. In this episode, Whitehead sits down with Michael Cohen, a professor of African American Studies at UC Berkeley, to talk about this ambitious, expansive, and important novel.
“The Underground Railroad” is available now on Scribd.
