About the Author:

André Coleman has worked as a professional and freelance reporter for almost 20 years. His work has appeared in Black Voice News, the Daily News, the Burbank Leader, LA CityBeat, LA ValleyBeat, Out Front Magazine and the Pasadena Star-News. A lifelong resident of Altadena, CA. in 1998 he optioned his first screenplay. Currently he is the city reporter for the Pasadena Weekly. "I love the freedom of working for an alternative paper. People read it. At just about every daily paper, circulation is down. Most of them just regurgitate press releases and CNN, and even if they break it CNN will kill them on the follow-up story and give it more coverage in 24 hours than they can in a week. The alternatives are the voice of the people and cover the news CNN and the daily papers are afraid to touch." Coleman currently appears, and occasionally hosts, the political television show Newsrap on Thursday nights, and can be heard from 6 to 7 p.m. Sunday nights on the radio show Barry Gordon from Left Field with longtime actor and talk show host Barry Gordon. He is hard at work on his next novel, which should be out in the next two years Since childhood Coleman has had a love for books, art and film. He got real life lessons in politics in 1969 when his family became the first black family to move into an affluent neighborhood and the next year that school district, Pasadena Unified, became the first school district west of the Mississippi forced to implement court ordered busing. Coleman was one of the first children on the bus. "I am the black experience," he said. "From integration to excellence."
