Publisher's Summary

Three-time Golden Globe nominated actress Denise Nicholas has won great acclaim for her debut novel. Spreadout beside Celeste on the train is a paper entitled How to Stay Alive in Mississippi. A young, privileged black woman from Detroit, Celeste has begun to realize she knows as little about her race as her white ex-boyfriend. So she heads to the South “to shore up her own Negro-ness” by volunteering during the Freedom Summer.
