Essence bestselling author Donna Hill @brooklyngirl737 brings us an emotional love story set against the powerful backdrop of the civil rights movement that gripped a nation–a story as timely as it is timeless.

𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐟𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐨𝐟𝐚𝐁𝐅𝐥𝐚𝐭that just came out on 11/24 from @entangled_publishing @sidewaysbooks was one I really enjoyed. Historical moments mixed in with an opposites attract romance, this heartfelt book will pull you right in! 

What I loved most was how this one made me feel a part of this time in history, with insight to the struggle African Americans had during this time, and still fight for today. Full of powerful scenes and the perfect mix of emotion and education Hill writes in a way that makes you feel immersed in the story.

. . .

The year is 1963. In Harlem, the epicenter of Black culture, the fight for equality has never been stronger. The time is now. Enough is enough. Yet even within its ranks, a different kind of battle rages. Love thy neighbor? Or rise up against your oppressors?

Jason Tanner has just arrived in New York to help spread the message of his mentor, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., of passive resistance, while beat poet Anita Hopkins believes the teachings of Malcolm X with all her heart: that the way to true freedom is “by any means necessary.” When Jason sees Anita perform her poetry at the iconic B-Flat lounge, he’s transfixed. And Anita has never met anyone who can match her wit for wit like this. 

One movement, two warring ideologies–can love be enough to unite them?

Confessions in B-Flat is a celebration of the hard-won victories of those who came before us, and a stark reminder of just how far we still have to go.
