 You can watch I Hurd That's review of Kindred here.  

The visionary author’s masterpiece pulls us—along with her Black female hero—through time to face the horrors of slavery and explore the impacts of racism, sexism, and white supremacy then and now.

Dana, a modern black woman, is celebrating her twenty-sixth birthday with her new husband when she is snatched abruptly from her home in California and transported to the antebellum South. Rufus, the white son of a plantation owner, is drowning, and Dana has been summoned to save him. Dana is drawn back repeatedly through time to the slave quarters, and each time the stay grows longer, more arduous, and more dangerous until it is uncertain whether or not Dana's life will end, long before it has a chance to begin.

Motivation to keep reading!


Fantastic. I actually met her in Boston about 20 years ago. I will never forget the experience. Thank you.

Very happy!

Ordered two books from Sistahscifi and I've been very happy with both the books and my buying experience -- which included a personal letter and e-mail from owner Isis Asare -- have been great! In an age where Amazon can make it feel like I'm making purchases in a dystopian future world, I'm happy places like Sistahscifi exist!


Octavia E. Butler took me for a ride with Kindred. Absolutely mind blowing! I see why this book is so loved.
