Libertie by Kaitlyn Greenidge

Greenidge’s powerful new novel considers post- Reconstruction life for Black women as they struggle with issues of race, colorism, misogyny, and the meaning of freedom. Libertie is the daughter of one of the first female Black doctors in New York and is struggling between the expectations thrust upon her by her mother, her schoolmates who came to freedom from many directions, and her Haitian husband whose ideals about equality don’t live up to the reality of their life together. The novel’s depth of these still-relevant topics is matched only by its poetic prose. A beautiful addition to literature’s historical record. — Casey
