We will be discussing The Revisioners by Margaret Wilkerson Sexton. Former slave Josephine is the proud owner of a farm in 1924. She begins a tentative friendship with a white woman named Charlotte, one that jeopardizes Josephine's family. Ava, a single mother, is Josephine's modern-day descendent. When she loses her job, she moves in with her white grandmother whose behavior becomes erratic and threatening. Although separated by almost a century, Josephine and Ava's stories begin to converge, exploring the power of relationships, the dangers that can destroy them, and generational legacies.
