Stacey Robinson is an assistant professor of graphic design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Reviews
"Focus on rebuilding efforts ends this brief but informative book on a hopeful note"--Booklist
"Across the Tracks not only personalizes and therefore heightens the tragedy we know will come, but it also reframes that tragedy. Black perseverance and joy take center stage in a way it seldom does when discussing Greenwood. This story is about Greenwood, not Tulsa and the race massacre, a deliberate choice on Ball and Stacey's end."

--The Beat
"Educational and accessible, this feels well crafted for any American history class, or as a primer for general readers unfamiliar with this dark chapter of American history."--Publishers Weekly
