Mending the World: Stories of Family by Contemporary Black Writers
Rosemarie Robotham (ed); Maya Angelou (pf); Pearl Cleage (fr)
A literary celebration of the black family in America, this book showcases the best, most evocative literature of kinship by a new generation of North American black writers. The stories in this anthology reveal the modern experience of the black family as deeper, richer, and infinitely more complex than it has been portrayed in the past. From Debra Dickerson’s lament over the loss of a murdered nephew to John Edgar Wideman’s delight at watching his daughter play basketball in the WNBA, from Shay Youngblood’s moving fictional evocation of a forgotten mother to poet Kendal Hippolyte’s poignant telling of a father’s unexpected legacy, this inspiring vol. presents -- through fiction, memoir and poetry -- a multi-layered portrait of today’s black America.
