Malafemmena Reviewed in People; John Carlos Talks to NPR’s Morning Edition About Being a Black Olympian
 
Love, childbirth, betrayal, and violence: these are the stars of Louisa Ermelino’s Malafemmena, as hailed by a new review in Peoplemagazine on August 22. The collection of stories focuses on "evil women" (which is the rough English translation of the title). Published on August 9, the book was quickly snatched up by People for inclusion in its “New in Fiction” section, and called “striking.” Malafemmena was included in InStyle Magazine's list of August 2016 Book Recommendations, which said the book " will leave you feeling inspired.'Upcoming reviews will appear in Library Journal and Electric Literature’s “Recommended Reading” series. Also stay tuned for an exclusive interview with Louisa Ermelino on The Rumpus (date tba).
 
In the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, John Carlos sprinted his way to the bronze medal for the 200-meter dash in Men’s Track. When he and gold medalist Tommie Smith took to the podium and the national anthem began to play, they raised their fists. “We were making a humanitarian statement,” Carlos told National Public Radio’s Morning Edition today. In the interview, Carlos went on to say, “I think that if you're famous and you're black, you have an opportunity to be a voice for the voiceless,” and that you can’t separate politics from the Olympics. In 2013, Carlos reflected on the unimaginable impact that his small gesture had on the progression of sports and civil rights activism in his memoir The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World. Carlos further discussed the great strides that have been made (and the great strides left to come) in the 2016 Rio Olympics in an interview with Hip Hop Wired on August 18.
