Ep. 4 The Stacks Book Club – Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward

On this week of The Stacks, PhD candidate Sarah Fong is back, and we're talking about Jesmyn Ward's memoir, Men We Reaped.    Our conversation dives into the deaths of five Black men in Ward's life, and what these deaths say about the greater experience of Black people in America. We discuss substance abuse, mental health, grief, systemic racism and a lot more.   There are spoilers in this episode, so if you've yet to read the book proceed with caution.   Here are links to the things we mentioned this week: Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story" (Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda) "Black-ish" (ABC, S4.
