Training School for Negro GirlsDownloadable Audiobook - 2018
This debut collection is a complicated love letter to Washington, DC, and to those who call it home: a TSA agent who's never flown, a girl braving new worlds to play piano, and a teacher caught up in a mayoral race. These characters navigate life's "training school"-with lessons on gentrification and respectability-and fight to create their own sense of space and self.
