Reflections is a collaboration of James, Pochino Press and more than 20 national and international writers hailing from cities as diverse as London, Tokyo, New York, Addis Ababa, Taipei, and of course, Oakland. Each writer interpreted one of James' pieces from over the years including paintings of Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Celia Cruz, Nelson Mandela, and Sarah Vaughan.
Our evening's activities will feature readings by respected writers and poets in the book:
