Essence bestselling author Donna Hill brings us an emotional love story set against the powerful backdrop of the civil rights movement that gripped a nation--a story as timely as it is timeless...

The year is 1963. In Harlem, the epicenter of Black culture, the fight for equality has never been stronger. The time is now. Enough is enough. Yet even within its ranks, a different kind of battle rages. Love thy neighbor? Or rise up against your oppressors?

Jason Tanner has just arrived in New York to help spread the message of his mentor, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., of passive resistance, while beat poet Anita Hopkins believes the teachings of Malcolm X with all her heart: that the way to true freedom is "by any means necessary." When Jason sees Anita perform her poetry at the iconic B-Flat lounge, he's transfixed. And Anita has never met anyone who can match her wit for wit like this...

One movement, two warring ideologies--can love be enough to unite them?

Confessions in B-Flat is a celebration of the hard-won victories of those who came before us, and a stark reminder of just how far we still have to go.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Hill (Rooms of the Heart) spins a powerful romance between passionate young activists during the American Civil Rights Movement. After marching on Washington, D.C., Atlanta native Jason Tanner, a committed advocate of nonviolence, is tapped to open Martin Luther King Jr.'s Harlem field office. On the bus to New York, he meets Anita Hopkins, a Brooklyn-born firebrand who firmly believes in Malcolm X's message to demand equal treatment using any means necessary. Opposites attract and the pair quickly fall in love--but can they make their relationship last amid the turbulent times and despite their differing ideologies? Hill doesn't hold back from discussing the atrocities perpetuated on African Americans or the risks her courageous characters take in advocating for their rights. Historical photos, famous speeches, and news articles from the day punctuate the narrative, and Hill skillfully weaves in real heroes of the movement, including the late John Lewis, to whom the book is dedicated. Meticulous research, achingly real characters, and convincing romance power this enthralling tale, which ultimately lands on a message of love and compromise. This is a knockout. (Nov.)"
