"They all talk to each other, these different characters, and the voices and personalities come out from these little blurbs. They have their various conversations and desires and trials. But they’re black characters that were in plays or texts written by white writers. So these are representations of black people. To me it made sense that the representations of Africans in books would be the voices for the representations of blackness or black people in these spots."
