Special thanks to Sarah Weinman. When I went looking for a digital copy of this article on the internet, I found her post,”The Crime Lady #021,” where she referenced the article. I dug an old hard copy out of the files and, unfortunately, it still seems relevant in the battle for representation of people of color…over 20 years after the original article and 50 years after the first of these books came out.

Big thanks, also to The Armchair Detective journal for publishing it and Dr. Joyce Hope Scott who encouraged me to write it.
