"Ice" exhibits the commitment to storytelling and the intersection between fiction and politics that made Toni Cade Bambara one of the most important voices of her generation, and an advocate of recognition for African American women writers. A selection from Deep Sightings and Rescue Missions, a posthumous collection of Bambara's uncollected writings, included here with a loving preface by Toni Morrison--a discussion of her relationship with Bambara and the unprecedented "heart cling" of her fiction.

An eBook short.
