The Deep

By Daveed Diggs, William Hutson, Jonathan Snipes and Rivers Solomon

Loved by our collective!

Based on a song by clipping that imagines an underwater people descended from the pregnant Africans who were forced overboard during the middle passage, this novella expands on the song with remarkable complexity and richness. The Deep is a stunning interpretation of collective memory and generational trauma, and it is a story that lingers like the sharp taste of sea water long after you have put it down.

Content Warnings: Violence against enslaved peoples, drowning, sharks, trauma
