Our second meet up to discuss Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi will be at 11:30 am on Tuesday October 26 in the Fireside Room. A Zoom link will also be provided for those who aren't able to join us in person.
Homegoing follows the parallel paths of two sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi’s extraordinary novel illuminates slavery’s troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed—and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
