A Fresh and Unflinching Portrait of African American life

A Fresh and Unflinching Portrait of African American life

A moving tale of love and the consequences of American racial disparity spanning three generations of a New Orleans family

“… Sexton delivers a fresh and unflinching portrait of African American life and establishes herself as a new and much-needed voice in literature. Vividly imagined and boldly told, A Kind of Freedom is a book for our time. A fierce and courageous debut.” —Natalie Baszile, author of Queen Sugar

“… [T]his emotionally wrenching, character-rich debut spans three generations in a city deeply impacted by segregation, economic inequality, and racial tensions……In this fine debut, each generation comes with new possibilities and deferred dreams blossoming with the hope that this time, finally, those dreams may come to fruition.”Publishers Weekly, starred review
