Description: For all of us, who have never toiled in one-hundred-degree sun with our six-year-old child at our knees, the South can sometimes be a romanticized dream of family, or a nightmare of burned bodies hanging from trees. What I discovered in the telling of this history was the importance of the land to those who continue to work it and in working it honor those who spilled their blood to escape it.

With Quinn Eli, Charlene Gilbert embarks on a search for her own family's story and the larger, untold history of African-American farmers. A companion book to the PBS documentary, Homecoming traces black ownership of land from the time of Reconstruction, when black farmers first worked their own land, to the recent Supreme Court decision that grants them restitution from the federal government for racist banking practices. As black farmers struggle to survive today, Homecoming pays tribute not only to the devastating losses they have suffered throughout the century but also to the legacy of hope that endures in the story of African-Americans working the land.
