“The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois” by Honorée Fanonne Jeffers is an epic saga that tells the story of several generations of a Black family from a small fictional town in Georgia. Spanning decades before the Civil War to the recent present the story explores various facets of Black History and is tied together by the writing and philosophy of W.E.B. Du Bois. The book clocks in at an initially daunting 800+ pages but is an engrossing read that will go by quickly. Despite being Jeffers’ first novel it is masterfully written with a rich fictionalized history seemingly brought to life with a cast of complex and incredibly human characters.
