The Los Angeles Times calls it "laugh out loud funny," and Entertainment Weekly declares "the rewarding Underdog proves that Davis is a winner at something."

    Historical Motown Records & Jack the Rapper w/ Author Walker Smith

    in Relationships

    Welcome to the QPKS Network! Today we welcome, Author Walker Smith to talk the Historical Motown Records, Jack the Rapper and more!


    ABOUT WALKER SMITH


    As the child of a jazz drummer and a book-addicted beatnik, Walker Smith grew up in a house filled with music and literature. The music bug bit first, and Walker was signed as a recording artist with the prestigious Casablanca label (under the name Bobbi Walker). But between studio sessions and appearances, she quietly pressed on with her creative writing and history studies. Three solo albums later, she walked away from the music business and headed for New York to pursue her real dream to write. She wrote interviews and articles for African Voices and Vertigo magazines, features for the Reel Sisters Film Festival, and a collaborative biography with black radio pioneer Jack the Rapper Gibson. After releasing her first historical novel  The Color Line , Walker Smith began work on what would   become her most personal novel--Bluestone Rondo.
