High Cotton Available for Preorder

We’re very happy to share the cover for High Cotton, a collection of essays by Kristie Robin Johnson forthcoming on August 4, 2020. We’re grateful to Melissa Williams Design for working with us on this beautiful design.

Kristie Robin Johnson has lived nearly her whole life in small town Georgia, as did five generations of African American women before her beginning with a slave, her oldest known ancestor. In High Cotton, Johnson explores the social and economic consequences of her lineage, drawing on her experience as a post–civil rights era, post–women’s liberation, pre-millennial black woman to illuminate the lived reality of a daughter of the Deep South, in the process conjuring universal truths every reader will recognize.

Preorder directly from Raised Voice Press and be one of the first to receive your copy when we begin shipping in July. Get High Cotton for the sale price of only $15.00 when you preorder by March 31.
