Black Cake

The Caribbean Heritage Group is pleased to highlight Black Cake, the upcoming sophomore novel by former journalist, Jamerican Charmaine Wilkerson. After a fierce bidding war, Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and Marissa Jo Cerar won the screen rights to this family drama wrapped in a murder mystery, which takes the reader on a spell-binding journey on 3 continents.

Hillary Teeman, Executive Director of Random House’s Ballantine Books, describes “Black Cake” among other things as “The emotional connections infused into this Caribbean dessert of soaked fruits and blackened sugar are at the heart of Black Cake, a soaring saga about a mother’s secrets, a family’s uncertain future and the legacy of what we inherit through our recipes, our pasts, and often our untold stories.”

On a personal note, during her tenure at ABC7 in Los Angeles and before her move to Italy, Charmaine supported the efforts of the Caribbean Heritage group through the Caribbean Heritage Magazine. We are elated to announce that CHO/CHM will be launching a Black Cake recipe contest, with winners to be announced to coincide with the February 1, 2022, release of the novel. Please follow us on our social media platforms and websites for more information.

Black Cake can be preordered at http://www.randomhousebooks.com/books/677183/ or your favorite bookstore.
