Uprooted from Africa, Felder’s family’s story twists and turns, and as most Southern stories do, it exposes frailties, injuries, hope, and faith – all cloaked in illusions of “states’ rights,” individuals’ rights, honor, freedom, and religion – defined differently, of course, depending on the color of one’s skin or origin of birth. Yet, her enslaved ancestors survived and descendants thrived. Joseph and Susannah’s child, Sona, became “one of Mississippi’s greatest preachers.” (J.J. Morant, Mississippi Minister, New York: Vantage Press, 1958, 63). Sona’s daughter, Beatrice, became one of Mound Bayou’s greatest teachers.
An African proverb says that until the lion learns to write, the story of the hunt will always glorify the hunter. This book will make lions want to learn to write to tell the story of their hunt. For freedom. For justice.
