The Cocoa Lounge Remembers: Bebe Moore Campbell

Author, Bebe Moore Campbell

The literary world has lost another one of its amazing talents: Bebe Moore Campbell died yesterday in Los Angeles, she was only 56. Many may know Bebe through her novels, others may know her as the mother of actress, Maia Campbell, but she will forever be remembered as one of the most prominent female voices of African American fiction.

In a year that has seen the loss of science fiction great, Octavia E. Butler, Bebe's passing has sent a collective shock through the African American literary community.

Here's a brief article from USA Today:

Best-selling author Bebe Moore Campbell has died from brain cancer in Los Angeles, the Associated Press reports. She was 56. Her books include Brothers and Sisters, What You Owe Me, Singing in the Comeback Choir and 72 Hour Hold. Read more about her life and writing at her Web site, African American Literature Book Club and Voices From the Gaps. BookReporter has a 1998 interview with her, and NPR has several links for audio of her commentaries that aired on the network.

Bebe Moore Campbell will be deeply missed.
