Negroland: A Memoir

Margo Jefferson 

What Brit Bennett Says: This book delves into the elite Black communities of Chicago, and it helped inform my thinking around the insular enclave of Mallard. Although Mallard is not a wealthy community, its residents share the ideology that whiteness or lightness is necessary in order to move up in the world.  

What They Say: “Bold and defiant… has the experimental and experiential quality of jazz” – Colin Grant, Guardian

Available on, Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and Amazon
