Malachi was black and had albinism. Double tragedy! Fortunately, he had a good life, a loving family, and kind neighbors. Everything came to a halt when Bennett Dickson and his dad moved into the community. The white racist would taunt Malachi’s family at every opportunity until it became fatal. Malachi and his mom escaped to his grandma at Dolorville, away from the cruel media and prying eyes. Unfortunately, they jumped from the frying pan into the fire. At Dolorville, he was cursed, isolated, and put through emotional hell for his albinism. Film-making was Malachi’s solace, but no matter how far he ran, he could never outrun the injustice done to his family. Would he let it go or pay a brutal visit to the past? Read Still Black by Tammy Ferebee for the details.
Still Black by Tammy Ferebee was a sobering book I couldn’t put down. It hypnotized me. I felt like I was watching the news. But this time, instead of the media version, I watched through the victims' eyes. I took a peek behind the scene to see how the victims reacted to loss, processed the pain and grief, handled the mental impact of varying testimonies, and how the majority drowned out their voices. Tammy approached this story from several educative angles, such as white on black racism and black on black racism. She also exposed people's ignorance of albinism and how cruel hypocrites hide behind religion to hurt others. Tammy is an excellent storyteller who wrote a brilliant story with supercharged emotions. I must also commend the creative and intentional cover of this novel. It made me want to see what was inside, and I wasn’t disappointed! Keep up the great work, Tammy!
