Author, educator, and public school reformer C. L. Kennedy’s memoir, “One Hundred Pieces of Sun” charts a trajectory from the author’s childhood in the Jim Crow Alabama of the 1950s and a not-exactly-equal-rights city in the rust-belt, to Sarah Lawrence College, and ending with her junior year abroad at the University of Ghana, followed by travels through Africa using only local transportation. Kennedy’s remarkable book (and presentation) is infused with her enthusiasm for life, and delivers a powerful, inspiring message: Have faith in God and yourself, and follow your dreams!

"This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it." In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation's history and current crisis. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden?
