Book cover for Homegoing by Yaa GyasiBook Discussion with Yaa Gyasi

Homegoing, named one of Oprah’s Best Books of the Year, follows the parallel paths of these 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.
