Cooling Board Nominated for NAACP Image Award
During a press conference on Jan. 6, Cooling Board: A Long-Playing Poem was announced as a nominee for the NAACP Image Award in the Outstanding Literary Work-Poetry category. The announcement has come at a great time with the second leg of Mitchell L.H. Douglas' book tour slated to begin Jan. 18 in St. Louis. It should also be noted that fellow Red Hen author Camille Dungy was nominated in the same category for her contribution as editor for the anthology Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry (The University of Georgia Press). The awards will be broadcast live on Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
