Award-winning poet Honorée Fanonne Jeffers’ debut novel is a feat of beauty and breadth. More than 800 (impeccable) pages long, and in the works for more than a decade, The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois is an expansive multigenerational saga of an American family from the years of enslavement through present day. At the center is Ailey Pearl Garfield, a Black woman who sets off to better understand herself by learning more about her family’s history, and ends up uncovering generations of struggles and secrets.
