Jackson State University Margaret Walker Center presents to you the excerpts of Jubilee by Margaret Walker. Vyry Brown is a mixed-race slave - the unacknowledged daughter of her master - who is born on the Dutton plantation in Georgia. The novel follows her experiences from early childhood to adult life.

Jubilee tells the true story of Vyry, the child of a white plantation owner and one of his black slaves. Vyry bears witness to the South’s antebellum opulence and to its brutality, its wartime ruin, and the promises of Reconstruction.

Jubilee by Margaret Walker Alexander gave me a good insight into what happened to the formerly enslaved just before and just after the end of enslavement in America. Through the protagonist the author effectively chronicles this period for those of us unfamiliar with that period of American history.
