An Afternoon with Kim Johnson

UMD alum Kim Johnson is an activist, college administrator, and civic leader. She is the author of three novels. Her debut novel, This Is My America, follows a young, Black, female protagonist seeking justice for her father’s wrongful murder conviction while also aiming to solve the murder of a white girl, which the town is attempting to pin on her brother. Her second novel, Invisible Son, is another thriller ripped from the headlines about a wrongly accused teen desperate to reclaim both his innocence and his first love in a bold story set in 2020. Her third novel, The Color of a Lie releases in June 2024 which will be her first historical thriller.
