MFOB featured book: Coleman Hill
Coleman Hill is the exhilarating story of two American families whose fates become intertwined in the wake of the Great Migration. A stunning “biomythography,” a word coined by the late great writer Audre Lorde, Coleman Hill draws from the author’s own family legend, historical record, and fervent imagination to create an unforgettable new history. Told through the voices of nine family members, their perspectives at once harmonious and contradictory, the book is a penetrating multigenerational debut.
