Summary

Three-time Golden Globe nominated actress Denise Nicholas has won great acclaim for her debut novel. Spread out beside Celeste on the train is a paper entitled "How to Stay Alive in Mississippi." A young, privileged black woman from Detroit, Celeste has begun to realize she knows as little about her race as her white ex-boyfriend. So she heads to the South "to shore up her own Negro-ness" by volunteering during the Freedom Summer. "Sometimes gorgeous, sometimes terrifying, this novel marks the debut of a talented writer."-Publishers Weekly, starred review
