Crumbs from the Table of Joy
by Lynn Nottage
As seen through the eyes of 17-year-old Ernestine Crump, Crumbs from the Table of Joy is the heartwarming story of a motherless African-American family that moves from the South to Brooklyn in the late 1950’s to start a new life. When the widower father impulsively marries a white German woman, his daughters struggle to create a normal life for themselves. What follows is a tender and joyful story of an American family.
