Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
An excellent story of a New Orleans family's ascent from slavery to freedom, paying poetic tribute to their fearlessness and a "mind magic" that fixes the present, sees into the future, and calls out from the past. In alternating chapters, two women tell their haunting, frightening, and ultimately uplifting stories.  A chilling plot twist reveals the insidious racial divide that stretches through the generations, but it's the larger message that's so timely. "Ain't no use in hate," Josephine's mother advises. "Whatever you trying to get away from, hate just binds you to it."
