The Dreams of African Americans
Michael Ortiz Hill
In researching the patterns black people's dreams about white people, Ortiz Hill dug into the literature of the African worlds that black Americans came out of and found that those worlds were intact in their nightly dreams. Weaving scholarship and interviews with the Shona medicine man Mandaza Augustine Kandemwa, Ortiz Hill offers the recognition that, at the most intimate level, Africa has kept faith with the African-American soul.
