“I’m reading ‘The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois’ (a novel by Honoree Fanonne Jeffers) because a friend said it was ‘the best fiction’ she’d read, maybe ever. So far it’s a beautiful, heart-wrenching epic with rich characters who are exploring among other things, the history of Blackness in America.”— SASHI KAUFMAN, Cumberland
