Andrea Cumbo

We are starting a new feature here at the PRISM blog. Each week at we let you know what’s going on with past contributors to PRISM.


Up first is Andrea Cumbo. In her March/April 2012 article, Andrea told us about her mother who battled against her own cancer while helping others battle theirs by working as a hospice volunteer. (Read the article here.)


Andrea blogs at and is currently working on a book about the people who were enslaved on the plantation where she grew up. You can check her blog every Wednesday for some of her thoughts on the writing process involved with this book.  Take a look at one of her recent entries on this topic, where she writes about Cato, a slave, and his request to see his wife:  Cato’s Hope.


Is this a book you are looking forward to reading?
