    • Culture et société

This week on the F.A.B. podcast Moni and Kat dive into “The Water Dancer '' by Ta-Nehisi Coates. This story “is a magical realist work in which the protagonist, Hiram Walker—a slave on a Virginia plantation—discovers that he has the power of teleportation, a power which he must learn to control through his memory.” The powerful concept of remembering your painful past in order to transcend reality resonates with the ladies as they discuss the destructive legacy of real life slavery in America, the symbolism of being reborn with water, & the emotional labor of reading books like this one!! Kat has a hard time finding her words but manages to sing a Negro spiritual, which makes Moni laugh. You cannot miss this episode!! Cheers to the Fake Ass Book Club!
