The daughter of a successful paediatrician and a fashionable socialite, Margo Jefferson spent her childhood among Chicago s black elite. She calls this society Negroland : a small region of Negro America where residents were sheltered by a certain amount of privilege and plenty . With privilege came expectation. Reckoning with the strictures and demands of Negroland at crucial historical moments - the civil rights movement, the dawn of feminism, the fallacy of post-racial America - Jefferson brilliantly charts the twists and turns of a life informed by psychological and moral contradiction
