In a contemporary celebration of the African diaspora, a young girl living on the coast of South Carolina dreams of her distant relatives on the shores of Africa and beyond. Her reflections come together, creating an imaginative and illuminating vision of home.
Indigo Dreaming is a poetic meditation between two young Black girls—on different sides of the sea—who wonder about how they are intricately linked by culture, even though they are separated by location. Dinah Johnson, a Black South Carolinian, weaves a beautiful tale of diaspora while lightly touching on Gullah Geechee culture and its connection to the Mother Land and beyond.
