Jubilee, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Jubilee tells the true story of Vyry, the child of a white plantation owner and his black mistress.

Vyry bears witness to the South's antebellum opulence and to its brutality, its wartime ruin, and the promises of Reconstruction.

Weaving her own family's oral history with thirty years of research, Margaret Walker's novel brings the everyday experiences of slaves to light.

Jubilee churns with the hunger, the hymns, the struggles, and the very breath of American history.
