Men We Reaped

Ward’s latest is a memoir tells her life story through the deaths of four men whom she loves. Ward writes about their deaths as casualties of systemic racism which she explains in an easily digestible way, complete with statistics – presumably included for those always clamoring for proof. These southern Black men are depicted as whole, complex, and loved people which I found nourishing to read, and I’m sad to say, groundbreaking.
