Guest Host: Susan Page

We remember Bebe Moore Campbell, who died last November at age 56, by taking a look at the novel for which she received the NAACP Image Award for Literature. Spanning the decades from the mid 1950s to the late 1980s, “Your Blues Ain’t Like Mine” is a timeless tale of racism, murder, and redemption.
