Event Details

LaShonda Katrice Barnett’s novel JAM ON THE VINE chronicles the life of a trailblazing African American female journalist Ivoe Williams.

Inspired by the real life of Ida B. Wells, the novel follows Williams from a poor, segregated quarter of Texas, to prestigious Willetson College in Austin, and finally to Kansas City, where she and her former teacher and lover, Ona, found the first female-run African American newspaper.

JAM ON THE VINE is an epic vision of the hardships and injustices that defined an era and a moving and compelling story of one woman’s extraordinary life.
