The Angel of Greenwood

Image of item
Book

First edition.

"Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Wilson is, on the surface, a town troublemaker, but he hides the fact that he is an avid reader and poet who never leaves home without his journal. A passionate follower of W.E.B Du Bois, he believes that Black people should rise up to claim their place as equals. Sixteen-year-old Angel Hill is a loner, mostly disregarded by her peers as a goody-goody but beloved by the adults in her community for her sweet and generous heart. Though they've attended the same schools, Isaiah never noticed Angel as anything but a quiet, Bible-toting church girl. Then he sees her perform a dance at a church service and finally connects with her brave, free-spirited beauty. When their English teacher offers them a job on her mobile library, a three-wheel, two-seater bike, Isaiah is eager to be in such close quarters with Angel every afternoon. But life changes on May 31, 1921, when a vicious white mob storms the community of Greenwood. Only then do Isaiah, Angel and their peers realize who their real enemies are."--Provided by publisher.
