A 50th anniversary edition of Margaret Walker's best-selling classic with a foreword by Nikki Giovanni

"Chronicles the triumph of a free spirit over many kinds of bondage." -- New York Times Book Review

Jubilee tells the true story of Vyry, the child of a white plantation owner and his black mistress. Vyry bears witness to the South's antebellum opulence and to its brutality, its wartime ruin, and the promises of Reconstruction. Weaving her own family's oral history with thirty years of research, Margaret Walker's novel brings the everyday experiences of slaves to light. Jubilee churns with the hunger, the hymns, the struggles, and the very breath of American history.
