From the archives: Naima Coster on her novel 'What's Mine and Yours'
When a racially segregated community is suddenly forced to integrate high schools, it inextricably intertwines families on opposite sides of the divide.
How two of those families navigate the chaos — and its ripple effects for years to come — is at the heart of Naima Coster's novel, “What's Mine and Yours.”
Coster joined MPR News host Kerri Miller for the season finale of the 2021 Talking Volumes series, Talking Race. We hope it will whet your appetite for Miller’s conversation with Clint Smith this coming Friday, when they will talk about his book, “How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America.”
Naima Coster is the author of two novels. Her most recent is “What’s Mine and Yours.”
