Moonrise Over New Jessup by Jamila Minnicks
|Availability:||In stock (20)|
Winner of the 2021 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, a thought-provoking and enchanting debut about a Black woman doing whatever it takes to protect all she loves at the beginning of the civil rights movement in Alabama.
Based on the history of the many Black towns and settlements established across the country, Jamila Minnicks's heartfelt and riveting debut is both a celebration of Black joy and a timely examination of the opposing viewpoints that attended desegregation in America.
We are excited because this history will touch families here in Detroit. Just like Northern Bound recalls in this passage - We are often called Alabama Up North. Between 1910 and 1970, more than six million African Americans moved to cities like Detroit from states like Alabama!!!!
