Colette Barris

Writer Colette Barris is a graduate of the University of Southern California, a native of Pacoima, and the older sister of Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Black-ish creator/writer and 2017 Peabody winner Kenya Barris.

Colette Barris brings a fresh voice to the plight of Black experience in America. Claretta Street is clear, concise, yet layered with the complexities that encompass the Black experience in a way not articulated in American literature in years.
