All That She Carried by Tiya Miles

"All That She Carried" is a poignant exploration of the emotional and historical journey of a single cotton sack passed down through three generations of Black women, beginning with an enslaved woman named Rose who gave it to her nine-year-old daughter, Ashley, when she was sold away. The sack, which contained a few precious items, serves as a powerful symbol of love, resilience, and survival. Through meticulous research and evocative narrative, the book delves into the impact of slavery on individual lives and the enduring strength of maternal love across time and circumstance, revealing the profound connections between past and present.
