Reviews

"Powerfully important and deeply moving, Say I'm Dead is a story of race, family, and identity. Dolores Johnson is the daughter of a black man and a white woman--but how and why it took her years to realize that, and to unearth the secrets that defined her family along the way, testifies to the complicated his-tory of race relations in America. Johnson lived the changes our country has gone through and continues to wrestle with, and her story will both inspire and educate." --Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, author of The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir
