The Keenest Observers: Zinzi Clemmons

Nina Subin, zinzieclemmons.com

No one can know absolutely what it's like to live in another person's skin. 

But Zinzi Clemmons shares what it is like to come of age as an African-American woman in her debut novel, "What We Lose." 

Clemmons is Philadelphia-raised, with roots in South Africa and Trinidad. 

And she is host Robert Goodwin's guest in another edition of The Keenest Observers.  They unpack the experiences in the novel and in real life.
