This Too Will Pass

30.00 BBD

This Too Will Pass is the story of a girl's awakening to what it can mean to be an African-Caribbean spirit in a girl's body in the 1970s in Barbados. Her strong, loving relationship with her grandmother, the land, and communal memory guide her through the trauma that comes with any initiation. In this narrative misfortune is turned on its head, becoming opportunities for revelation, growth and kujichagulia-the determination to define ourselves, name ourselves, create ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
