About this product
- DescriptionPeggi Eve Anderson-Randolph's vel Josephine's Incredible Shoe and the Blackpearls sweeps the reader from the Jazz Age into the Eighties as the story of an engaging black couple evolves. Tally and Chat Blackpearl and their heirs move from a good life to a better one. Is their desire to reach success caused by wit and perseverance or is their talisman, a gorgeous shoe, responsible? The shoe may have belonged to a scintillating black star, Josephine Baker, who wowed Paris in the Twenties and with whom Chat Blackpearl had a brief fling. The rhythm of this story never misses a beat as we travel with the Blackpearls from a black college in the Ohio cornfields, through the South and on to World War II Los Angeles via the Panama Canal. The perils and joys of being black in modern America are shared in this upbeat story of REACH.
