Critical acclaim for The Calling of Katie Makanya
"A very marvelous and precious document. . . . It is a magnificent story superbly told. The combination of Katie's extraordinary life and McCord's immense talent as a storyteller is overwhelming. I found it compulsive reading and deeply moving." --Athol Fugard.
"I fell in love with the Delaney sisters, enjoying both the book and the play. It is good to know their sister in Africa also has her say, that Katie's life, too, can be shared." --Nikki Giovanni
"To know the story of Katie Makanya is to feel the pain and promise of life for blacks in South Africa for generations." --Detroit Free Press
"Emotionally compelling, resonantly detailed, and of extraordinary cultural significance." --Kirkus Reviews
