Book Overview

What happens when a White woman, Phoebe, contacts a Black woman, Betty, saying she suspects they are connected through slavery? First surprise? Betty responds, Hello, Cousin. Betty had fought for an education and won. She broke through the concrete ceiling in the workplace and succeeded. A documentary of her life was about to debut. Without thinking, she invites Phoebe to a family dinner and the premiere of the documentary. Second surprise? She forgot to tell her family who was coming to dinner. Betty finds an activist partner in Phoebe. Cousins indeed, they commit to a path of reconciliation. In alternating chapters, each tells her dramatic story--from Betty's experience as one of the first Black children to attend her desegregated school, to Phoebe's eventual question to Betty: How do I begin to repair the harms? Piercingly honest. Includes a working reparations project which the two women conceived together.
