    1. An extremely useful read for those interested in connecting seminal issues of race and power through the musical narrative of the blues The author goes to great lengths unpacking the history of African descended people and their American experience in the deep south He is an eloquent writer and thoughtful storyteller who evokes rich imagery and a clearer understanding of the Black Experience A must read for the public at large, historians, geographers and those interested in deep culture.

    2. so far this book is laying the foundation for a economico geographical history of the plantation and it s legacies of maldevelopment Blues narratives are interspersed like a living memory

    3. six stars, seven stars took me far too long to finish this, or maybe just as long as needed, because it prompted numerous rad discussions while reading on the subway.
