coverCaucasia

Riverhead, 1998

Danzy Senna

Caucasia follows Birdie’s search for father and sister in the aftermath of Cointelpro and the break up her biracial activist parents.  Don’t read if you think this is a how-to book for Black and white parents.  It is a lesson in chasing fantasy, identity and the reality of dysfunctionality with dignity.

Below is a video of  Danzy Senna reading from her latest memoir, Where Did You Sleep Last Night.
