A Family Tree, Taking Root

A Family Tree, Taking

Although initially I felt a bit overwhelmed by the length of the book, by the end I felt as if I were losing members of my own family and longed for just one more page.Reviewed by Stacey Seay (see more below)In A Family Tree, Taking Root by David doc Robertson -- Roman and Virginia Robinson survive a historic, yet eventful journey from the 1960s through the next three decades. Roman is rough around the edges and confronts the environment head on. Virginia fights through internal conflicts to attain her goal of becoming an attorney. Kennedy was president and one of the top songs was Soldier Boy. For some, including Roman Robinson and his sister Virginia, times were not so innocent. Their strength and confidence in one another helps them achieve their goals. This book is a hard hitting family drama about a lot of things that affect the Robinson family of Los Angeles who were probably affected by the events of the time the same as other families. Out on a Limb, Tucson WeeklyWhat I liked best is the loving reminiscences of L.A. in the '60s and '70s. Robertson has a great eye and ear for the place back when it had a personality. (Now all it has is personality disorders.) There is a certain echo of Walter Mosley in his writing, which, coming from me, is a high compliment, indeed....

Their Eyes Were Watching God

Their Eyes Were Watching

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick“A deeply soulful novel that comprehends love and cruelty, and separates the big people from the small of heart, without ever losing sympathy for those unfortunates who don’t know how to live properly.” —Zadie SmithOne of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.

Stony the Road: Reconstruction, White Supremacy, and the Rise of Jim Crow

Stony the Road: Reconstruction, White Supremacy, and the

The New York Times bestseller. A profound new rendering of the struggle by African-Americans for equality after the Civil War and the violent counter-revolution that resubjugated them, as seen through the prism of the war of images and ideas that have left an enduring racist stain on the American mind.The abolition of slavery in the aftermath of the Civil War is a familiar story, as is the civil rights revolution that transformed the nation after World War II. But the century in between remains a mystery: if emancipation sparked "a new birth of freedom" in Lincoln's America, why was it necessary to march in Martin Luther King, Jr.'s America? In this new book, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., one of our leading chroniclers of the African-American experience, seeks to answer that question in a history that moves from the Reconstruction Era to the "nadir" of the African-American experience under Jim Crow, through to World War I and the Harlem Renaissance. Through his close reading of the visual culture of this tragic era, Gates reveals the many faces of Jim Crow and how, together, they reinforced a stark color line between white and black Americans. Bringing a lifetime of wisdom to bear as a scholar, filmmaker, and public intellectual, Gates uncovers the roots of structural racism in our ow...
