YOU NEED TO KNOW: “THE MAN CURSE” AUTHOR RAQIYAH MAYS
[Words by: Ricardo Hazell]

It wasn’t that long ago that journalist, radio personality and activist Raqiyah Mays was doing battle down in the trenches of the entertainment industry here at The Shadow League as our head of entertainment. But with time comes growth and since her departure, our good friend has rekindled her love for broadcast radio as a personality over at WBLS in New York and completed her first novel “The Man Curse” on Simon & Schuster to great fanfare.

The book’s protagonist is a young woman named Meena who is doing her very best to separate herself from her family’s legacy of husbandless, bitter matriarchs. Mays is currently on a whirlwind book tour across the Northeast but I was able to get her to slow down just a bit to talk about “The Man Curse,” which has been showered with praise from the media. Check out the Q&A session below.
