- Leslie Peace Jubilee was born in Baltimore and was almost five years old when Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. At that age, she was not even aware of the ensuing riots, and although she knew there was something different and somewhat unacceptable about her and had experienced a few unpleasant encounters, she did not really get a good taste of racism until she moved to the predominately White suburbs around the age of ten. She graduated from Towson State University. She has an M.A. in Philosophy from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. Pursuing her education introduced her to other flavors of racism. At the time of the 2015 Baltimore uprising following Freddie Gray’s death, she was just a few short blocks from the main action, and of course, was keenly aware of the situation. She laments that a monster that changes its face depending on the environment in which it exists has claimed yet another life.
