“Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White is remarkable for its truth-telling about two important issues concerning Alabama’s past and present: the civil rights movement and immigration. These stories, rendered through the words and eyes of a young Latina girl who came from Argentina to Marion, Alabama, are made vivid and immediate through Weaver’s highly accessible drawings and dialogue. This is a book—about maturation, family, education, and social change—every schoolchild, parent, and citizen should experience.”—Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab’s Wife, Four Spirits, and Adam & Eve
“A truly incredible look at the civil rights movement. Darkroom offers a double view of that movement. A gem.”
—Nikki Giovanni, author of Gemini and On My Journey Now
