Summoning Black History in a Mystery with Victoria Bond

The parallels between the recent unfettered violence loosed upon our nation’s capital by many identifying as white supremacists and the uncountable atrocities historically committed against Black Americans are inescapable. Nor should they be. To explore this moment in American life, Alex welcomes Professor Victoria Bond.

John Steptoe/Coretta Scott King Award winner Victoria Bond is back with the final book in the Zora & Me trilogy, Zora & Me: The Summoner. In this fictionalized account of the childhood of American author and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, the Zora and Me Trilogy are mysteries that explore the wonders of childhood and the horrors of coming of age in the Jim Crow South. Join us for a conversation about the origins of the series. Bond's take on current events, why many Black Americans are wary of Covid-19 vaccine, and her approach to writing with a partner.
