Sue | 1391 comments What a wonderful book!

This collection of short stories gives the black POV from slavery's earliest days up to the modern era.

Some of the stories are simply works of art. One of my favorites tells the story of Jim from Huckleberry Finn. What happened to him after that story. Amazingly, there seem to be no other attempts to tell the story of Jim!

I don't want to give any spoilers, so I'll stick with this - This book was wonderful and unique. I'm incredibly glad to have found it and read it. We read it with the 21st Century Literature Group this month.
