Men We Reaped

Facing an 'Epidemic' of Death, 
Jesmyn Ward Writes Memoir of Loss, Larger Forces

Published on Sep 20, 2013

Here's a connection to the PBS News Hours interview of our Summer Reading author, Jesmyn Ward, from the YouTube Channel:

"In the space of four years, writer Jesmyn Ward endured the loss of five friends and family members -- all black men from rural Mississippi. In her new memoir, "Men We Reaped," she sets out to understand why. Ward talks to Jeffrey Brown about some of the institutional forces, coupled with personal choices, behind their deaths."
