Caroline Randall-Williams
TOPIC: Reclaiming Your Deferred Dream

Caroline is an author, poet, and academic whose 2015 book “Lucy Negro, Redux” was re-released in 2019 by Third Man Books and adapted into a ballet. In addition to her books of poetry, Caroline also co-wrote a cookbook with her mother, author Alice Randall, in 2015 called “Soul Food Love.” That book received the NAACP Image Award in Literature and led Southern Living to call her one of the “50 people changing the south.”

She currently teaches writing at two area colleges, setting a few days each week aside to write. Her work deals with issues of race, place, and otherness and for Ms. Williams, the goal is to inspire: “I hope anyone who is any kind of other will see us three women of color in these traditionally white arts — bluegrass music, classical ballet and Shakespearean theater — and say ‘they belong there, and I do, too.”
