Inspired to overcome the racism aimed at African Americans and the second-class status imposed on them, the protagonist in The Emancipation of Evan Walls dreams of a life bigger than that lived by most people he knows in the small Virginia town of Canaan. Caught in a crossﬁre of hate from whites and his own people, who question whether he is “black enough,” Evan is often alone and bewildered. Only the love of his great-grandmother, Mama Jennie, and his mentor, Bojack, keeps him on track.
