Reviews

"What can the work of Toni Morrison teach us about the world we live in? Morrison's work provides a scaffolding here; the narrative frame of the distinct voices is unique and makes for an intriguing multivocal experience."--Emily Bernard, author of Black Is the Body: Stories from My Grandmother's Time, My Mother's Time, and Mine
"Poignant. Fear and dread run through this book in a really impactful way, and every revelation felt substantive and singular. Reading Morrison becomes vital to the group's efforts to mourn and to march forward in their own lives."--Michelle S. Hite, Spelman College
"For book lovers and history buffs, as well as the politically engaged, this collection, though small in size, will yield vast intellectual riches."--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
