4. Somme collaborations with Margo Jefferson ?
Jefferson’s 2006 book, On Michael Jackson, was described by Publishers Weekly as a “slim, smart volume of cultural analysis.” According to Lucy Scholes in The Independent: “The excellent On Michael Jackson is not a straightforward biography, nor is it an attempt to claim either his innocence or his guilt when it comes to the child abuse scandals that, although he was acquitted, haunt his afterlife. A ‘deciphering’ is probably the most accurate description of the book, the shrewd playfulness of Jefferson’s prose the perfect vehicle for analysis that’s as smart as it is readable.”
Jefferson’s autobiographical book, Negroland, was published to acclaim in 2015. It was described by Dwight Garner in The New York Times as a “powerful and complicated memoir”, and by Margaret Busby in The Sunday Times as “utterly compelling”, while Anita Sethi wrote in The Observer: “Jefferson fascinatingly explores how her personal experience intersected with politics, from the civil rights movement to feminism, as well as history before her birth.” Tracy K. Smith wrote in The New York Times: “The visible narrative apparatus of ‘Negroland’ highlights its author’s extreme vulnerability in the face of her material. It also makes apparent the all-too-often invisible fallout of our nation’s ongoing obsession with race and class: Namely, that living a life as an exemplar of black excellence — and living with the survivor’s guilt that often accompanies such excellence — can have a psychic effect nearly as deadening and dehumanizing as that of racial injustice itself.” In 2016 Negroland was shotlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction and won the National Book Critics Circle Award in the Autobiography category.
Jefferson is a contributor to the 2019 anthology New Daughters of Africa.
