It’s Truth’s Table’s final BlackGirlMagic Interview of the season. Ekemini and Christina are sitting at the table with Patrice Gopo. Patrice was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, and she is the child of Jamaican immigrants. Her writing often considers racial identity formation, race relations, and the search for a sense of belonging. Her essays have appeared in a variety of publications, including Catapult, Creative Nonfiction, and online in The New York Times and The Washington Post. She is the recipient of a North Carolina Arts Council Literature Fellowship, and her essay collection, All the Colors We Will See, was a Fall 2018 Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection. When she’s not writing, she speaks about how personal storytelling can change people’s mindsets in pursuit of healing in society and a more equitable world. She lives with her family in Charlotte, North Carolina. Please visit to learn more. Pull up a chair, grab your teacup and have a seat at the table with us!
