About the Book

Kristie Robin Johnson has lived nearly her whole life in small town Georgia, as did five generations of African American women before her beginning with a slave, her oldest known ancestor.

In High Cotton, Johnson explores the social and economic consequences of her lineage, drawing on her experience as a post–civil rights era, post–women’s liberation, pre-millennial black woman to illuminate the lived reality of a daughter of the Deep South, in the process conjuring universal truths every reader will recognize.
