Walter Dean Myers New York Times Article

I ran across this article through a Facebook post today and had to share.  
Author Walter Dean Myers speaks very candidly about the lack of people of color in children's books today in a New York Times article.  With so many advancements that have been made in society, our image is not represented in literature.  Is it because there are a lack of African-American writers?  Interest about the African-American community as a whole? Could it be there is a quiet effort to prevent our story from being told and preserved in print for generations to come?  You be the judge after reading this article from this prolific author.
