Talking Volumes: A conversation with author Naima Coster

When a racially segregated community was suddenly forced to integrate high schools, it inextricably intertwined families on opposite sides of the divide.

How two of those families navigated the chaos — and its ripple effects for years to come — is at the heart of Naima Coster's newest novel, "What's Mine and Yours."

Coster joined MPR News host Kerri Miller for the season finale of Talking Volumes, Talking Race.


  • Naima Coster is the author of two novels. Her latest is titled “What’s Mine and Yours.”
