Libertie / by Greenidge, Kaitlyn,author.(GaAaGPL)898754;
"Coming of age as a free-born Black girl in Reconstruction-era Brooklyn, Libertie Sampson was all too aware that her purposeful mother, a practicing physician, had a vision for their future together: Libertie would go to medical school and practice alongside her. But Libertie feels stifled by her mother's choices and is hungry for something else. When a young man from Haiti proposes to Libertie and promises she will be his equal on the island, she accepts, only to discover that she is still subordinate to him and all men. As she tries to parse what freedom means for a Black woman, Libertie struggles with where she might find it -- for herself and for generations to come." -- page [4] of cover.
