There are few authors as smart, powerful, and visionary as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Zadie Smith. This week, we're proud to present them discussing clear writing, race, and relationships on the New York Public Library Podcast.

Story
Introduction
K.C. launched Noir A-Go Go in January 2011, with the idea that something was missing within the American pinup girl genre, namely women of color. So she decided to put what she calls a sepia spin on the beloved genre and Noir A-Go Go was born. A Mellon Fellow and a novelist with a background in journalism and literary and historical  fiction, K.C. has raised the curtain on a world of beautiful, empowered, stylish women (and a few men) and placed them on everything from magnets and tee shirts to tote bags and greeting cards, with more to come as she expands.
