Cascadia Weekly article: The Long Arc of Slavery

Amy Kepferle, Arts & Entertainment Editor for the Cascadia Weekly writes about the power and hope in  Canadian author Esi Edugyan’s book Washington Black and the story’s relevance in today’s world:

“The collective of libraries and community partners in Bellingham and throughout Whatcom County who selected Washington Black as the 2021 pick for the annual countywide book club may not have known about the high volume of civil unrest that was lurking just around the corner, but they were prescient in understanding that racism is a timely topic that needs to be addressed through both education and action, and that black lives matter.”
