Honorée Fanonne Jeffers: Dismantling Family Histories

Battling for belonging in her mother’s hometown in Georgia, Ailey Pearl Garfield embarks on a journey through her family history – and to the comprised heart of America itself. The Love Songs of W E B Du Bois, the highly acclaimed debut novel from poet Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, chronicles multiple generations of one American family, from the centuries of the colonial slave trade through the Civil War to our own tumultuous era. She tells all in today's conversation with Tomiwa Folorunso.

Honorée Fanonne Jeffers is appearing remotely.
