My Confederate Kinfolk: A Twenty-First Century Freedwoman Confronts Her Roots
Thulani Davis (au)
Starting from a photograph and writings left by her grandmother, African-Amer. novelist Thulani Davis goes looking for the “white folk” in her family, a Scots-Irish clan of cotton planters unknown to her -- and uncovers a history far richer and stranger than she had ever imagined. Along the way she finds tartan plaid, unlikely lovers, a lynching close to home, and Confederate soldiers. Her journey challenges us to examine the origins of some of our most deeply ingrained notions about what makes a family black or white, and offers an immensely compelling, intellectually challenging alternative. “A gripping historical tale that is uniquely, tragically American.” “Underlines a subject that tends to make people uncomfortable -- this nation’s knotty racial ties.” Photos.
