Lawyer Michael Jefferson reimagines Reconstruction in new book
By Shahid Abdul-Karim, New Haven Register

Bro. Van Blake

NEW HAVEN >> It's traditional in black literature to rewrite history.

And author Michael Jefferson did just that when he penned his book of historical fiction "Deo Vindice: The Resurrection."

"There are trailblazers and contemporary writers that have done this," said New Haven native Catina Bacote, a creative writing professor at Warren Wilson College in Ashville, North Carolina.

"What I respect about Michael Jefferson's work is he's using both history and the imagination in an effort to reimagine the past, (and) I believe the past impacts the present and what happens in the future." said Bacote.

"This type of work is respected and most people seem to respond well to it; it has a place and lots of value. "

"Deo Vindice: The Resurrection" is about one man's obsession to right the wrongs of a horrible racial injustice by empowering its victims to take matters into their own hands, according to Reading at the New Haven Register
