Reviews

"Driven by a need to understand her own identity, cultural critic Jerkins mounted an investigation into her family's tangled history, recounting in this candid memoir the surprising discoveries that emerged from her emotional journey. . . A revelatory exploration of the meaning of blackness."--Kirkus Reviews on Wandering in Strange Lands
Traveling throughout the country, she explores the path her family took as well as her cultural identity as a black woman. Her desire to understand both her personal and cultural origins will inspire you to do the same.--Elle on Wandering In Strange Lands
