The Nacirema Society
Every year since Emancipation, The Nacirema Society of Montgomery, Alabama introduces six elegant African-American debutantes to a world of wealth, privilege and social responsibility. For these young ladies, bus boycotts and freedom marches are less interesting than making a perfect entrance—or plotting the perfect blackmail. As the Society celebrates its centennial…with young love brewing, old flames simmering and national media attention abounding…what would dare go awry?
