Burn Baby Burn: An American Dream
By a. k. payne
Sky II returns home from college unsure of her own voice. Seeking answers, she turns to her grandmother, a person she has never met in the flesh, with whom she shares a name. Sky and Sky II — two Black American women of the same lineage, born in the second half of the 20th century — exist together across boundaries of time, space, life and death. Sky II embarks on a journey to reclaim her grandmother’s story, and through this, to demand the right to name and actualize the dreams she has for her own life.
