Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sikivu Hutchinson's vision of Jonestown, of the real people who left behind despair for what they thought was belief and hope, is a valuable one - her take is the one America hasn't yet seen." --Susan Straight, author, Between Heaven and Here and Take One Candle, Light a Room

"Sikivu Hutchinson's beautifully written novel captures the complicated relationship between remembering the past and attempting to forget. Her work is hauntingly evocative." --Duchess Harris, Professor of American Studies, Macalester College, author Black Feminist Politics from Kennedy to Clinton/Obama

"Sikivu Hutchinson's first novel, White Nights, Black Paradise, offers a new and refreshing look at Peoples Temple and Jonestown. Imagination and fact seamlessly blend together in this work of historical fiction. But what is most significant in this novel is its strong black voice and presence. Given the fact that Peoples Temple black membership approximated 90% in California, and that two-thirds of those who died in Jonestown were African American, White Nights, Black Paradise makes a welcome contribution by telling a story rarely heard, written from the perspective of a black feminist scholar." --Rebecca Moore, Jonestown Institute Review, editor, Peoples Temple and Black Religion in America
