ABOUT GOLDIE TAYLOR

Rambunctious raconteur, well-mannered vagabond and connoisseur of mediocre whiskey.

Goldie Taylor is an novelist, opinion writer and former political strategist. Now editor-at-large for The Daily Beast, Goldie has been a featured political analyst on nearly every major news network. She has been a guest on programs such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, The Dr. Phil Show, The Steve Harvey Show, and Good Morning America. Goldie appeared in “Light Skinned Girls,” a documentary released by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and “Eyes on the Prize: Then and Now” on PBS.


Then too, Goldie has been a frequent guest on a full host of local and national radio shows, including NPR’s All Things Considered, and has been regularly published in print and digital publications. In recent years, she has written op-ed columns for a myriad of national publications and, in October 2015, she penned a blockbuster cover story for Ebony about the rise and fall of Bill Cosby.

A sought-after public speaker, Goldie has addressed audiences at— among others— the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Harvard University, Morehouse College, Emory School of Law, Princeton University, Spelman College, Duke School of Law, National Association of Black Journalists, University of Missouri School of Journalism, The King Center and the Cambridge Speaker Series.


A St. Louis native, after a 10-year hiatus, her third novel--Paper Gods-- will be released in October 2018 by St. Martin’s Press. 


An avid runner, Goldie is the mother of three grown children and two grandchildren. She is, thus, convinced that God has a sense of humor.

THE SEARCH FOR MY FATHER'S KILLER

After my father was murdered in 1973, I spent decades looking for the man who killed him. What I found changed everything I’d believed about him and the life he lived. [READ MORE ON DAILY BEAST]

A SONG FOR BUSTER

My late Uncle Buster, a barrel-chested white man raised in the woody bowels of Louisiana and a self-professed bigot, opened his life, his home and his heart to me. Wendell “Buster” Carson was ours by marriage but, even as he rests in his grave, our bond remains as indelible as the etchings on his marble tombstone. [READ MORE ON DAILY BEAST]
