Eve’s Song

Patricia Ione Lloyd’s “Eve’s Song” is a searing exposé of what it means to be black and female in America today.  Much has been talked, written and protested about the perils of young black men in this country recently, with good reason. Racial disparity in job opportunities, incarceration rates and unemployment rates are well documented and discussed.  Violence against black men, especially by law enforcement, has been the cause of national attention and debate for several years, spawning whole movements such as Black Lives Matter.  But the specific toll on black women, and the violence done to them, often gets buried on the back pages of newspapers.  With “Eve’s Song,” Patricia Ione Lloyd does what women have always done through the ages, looks with compassion, humor, insight, bravery and unwavering strength at what has to be done, and takes it on.
