Makeda Gee Florida Harris March is a proud matriarch, the
anchor and emotional bellwether who holds together a hard-working African
American family living in 1950s Richmond, Virginia. Lost in shadow is Makeda’s
grandson Gray, who begins escaping into the magical world of Makeda’s tiny
Makeda, a woman blind since birth but who has always dreamed
in color, begins to confide in Gray the things she “sees” and remembers from
her dream state, and a story emerges that is layered with historical accuracy
beyond the scope of Makeda’s limited education.
Part coming-of-age story, part spiritual journey, and part
love story, Makeda is a universal
tale of family, heritage, and the ties that bind. Randall Robinson plumbs the
hearts of Makeda and Gray and summons our collective blood memories, taking the
reader on an unforgettable journey of the soul that will linger long after the
last page has been turned. Download and start listening now!
