en Limba Engleză Paperback – 14 dec 2023
Revealing mother and daughter memoir chronicling their final conversations, complexities as women and artists, and the rich history of their African American family.  
Shirley Bradley Price LeFlore, activist and architect of the 1960's Black Arts Movement, and Lyah Beth LeFlore share tears and laughter through intimate conversations during Shirley’s final year of life and discuss the childhood tragedy that shaped Shirley’s life and artistry. Lyah talks about growing up with a mother in the public eye, tracing Shirley’s ancestors’ experiences as a midwestern African American family with rich southern roots and a deep belief in God and the spirit world. 
A testament to the powerful bond between Shirley and her three daughters, the book shines a light on the beauty and toll of caregiving by beautifully interwoven prose, including Shirley’s private journal entries and unreleased poetry, discovered by Lyah, alongside stories, ephemera, and photographs
