Libertie by Kaitlyn Greenidge


Review by Kath:

Libertie, a free-born Black girl, daughter of an extraordinary doctor-mother, is the heroine of this amazing novel. Prose that dances off the page, exploring the shades of life in post Civil War America, shedding light on the lives of colour, whose inner lives we are so rarely are exposed to: this book dazzled me. A microscope onto the heart and conscience of a young woman trying to find her way, to shape her beliefs and understand what it is to be free, and where it is to be free. Powerful, redemptive, and such a voice of talent in storytelling.  Libertie must be read and passed onto everyone – it adds a new flame to American Literature, in a time when Black Lives Matter reminds how in need we all are to understand more deeply the history of its roots.
