Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

This is the story of 2 sisters from Ghana who never meet and the fate of their families over several generations. While Esi is sold into slavery and her descendents fight for survival as slaves in the South, during the Civil War and in today’s racist America, Effia’s family stays in Ghana and is affected and in parts complicit in the slave trade on the other side of the Atlantic. Particularly interesting due to the changing perspectives.
