It is a feminist black perspective on how and why lynchings happened in the South.
While waiting for summer, we explore the arts in full–

Can’t wait for your review. I haven’t read this. The last book I read was pretty intense and I have one on my list about the migration of African Americans over the last 100 years from the South to all over the US that I am looking forward to. I am sure we will have a lot of fodder for discussion!!
By the way I’m not sure why but your post reminded me of “throwing the baby out with the bath water.” No idea how that got into my head!!
