A groundbreaking work, National Book Critics Circle Crititism finalist Camille T. Dungy's Soil: The Story of a Black Mother's Garden examines the seven-year mission to diversify her Colorado garden. In protest of limiting policies, Dungy's garden becomes a powerful metaphor for how uniformity harms the natural world. As she reveals, employing intersectional language in eco-discourse is key to defending our planet. Insightful and unique, Soil encourages readers to recognize the link between African diasporic folks and the lands they inhabit, and to know that soil means home.
