James Lincoln Collier

James Lincoln Collier (born June 29, 1928) is an American journalist, professional musician, and author of books, primarily non-fiction for adult readers and fiction for children. His literary works include ''My Brother Sam Is Dead'' (1974), a Newbery Honor book that was also named an American Library Association Notable Children's Book and nominated for a National Book Award in 1975. He also wrote a children's book titled ''The Empty Mirror'' (2004), ''The Teddy Bear Habit'' (1967), about an insecure boy whose beatnik guitar teacher turns out to be a crook, and ''Rich and Famous'' (1975), sequel to ''The Teddy Bear Habit''. His list of children's books also includes ''Chipper'' (2001), about a young boy in a gang. His writings for adults include numerous books on jazz, including biographies of Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington. He has also contributed entries on jazz-related subjects to the ''Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians''.

In July 2014, Collier stirred controversy when his article "Nigger in the White House" was published in ''WestView News'', a West Village newspaper. The article is critical of perceived racism in the far-right's opposition to President Barack Obama. Provided by Wikipedia
