Black Personhood: The Writings of Hal H. Harris
Welcome to my Launch page! I’m Hal H.Harris, a small-time writer trying to make it to the medium-time (get it?) and the finalist in the Work category for the first Medium Creators Challenge. I write to explore Black personhood. How do Black people live and love in the West, a civilization that did not have our living and loving in mind when white people created it through the triangle trade and slavery? I explore this question through longform, researched stories.
I hope this gets you quickly oriented on how you can contact me and access my writing!
The two best ways to get in touch with me is either through Twitter or via e-mail.
My Twitter handle is https://twitter.com/Established1865. I sometimes respond to DMs, but you mainly want to follow me for all the spicy memes I spread.
You can also reach me at my writer’s e-mail, email@example.com. Please use this contact method for official business!

It’s the best place to keep up with both my recent longform and my Black on Both Sides newsletter, which I published every Sunday.
I tackled Medium’s Creator Challenge by writing all four prompts concurrently. Throughout these stories, you’ll see continuous, linked storytelling on my writer’s obsessions. Black personhood. Fried chicken. Politics. General Sherman. Hip-hop. Home repair. Cigars, and jerk chicken. They are also meant to be read in order.
