Negroland: 2

I just got that I’m also alienated from this book by a generation. Jefferson does not trouble herself to be relatable to people who don’t immediately relate– she doesn’t center me in any way, which we already know from Between the World and Me I find tricky– and that includes cultural references. Negroland is full of names of shows and stars I don’t know at all.
