NPR Summary

Two half-sisters, unknown to each other, are born into different villages in 18th-century Ghana and experience profoundly different lives. Homegoing follows generations of their descendants as they experience wealth, slavery, war, coal mining, the Great Migration and the realities of 20th-century Harlem.
