The water-breathing descendants of African slave women tossed overboard have built their own underwater society--and must reclaim the memories of their past to shape their future in this brilliantly imaginative novella inspired by the Hugo Award-nominated song "The Deep" from Daveed Diggs's rap group clipping. Yetu holds the memories for her people--water-dwelling descendants of pregnant African slave women thrown overboard by slave owners--who live idyllic lives in the deep. Their past, too traumatic to be remembered regularly, is forgotten by everyone, save one--the historian. This demanding role has been bestowed on Yetu. Yetu remembers for everyone, and the memories, painful and wonderful, traumatic and terrible and miraculous, are destroying her. And so, she flees to the surface, escaping the memories, the expectations, and the responsibilities--and discovers a world her people left behind long ago. Yetu will learn more than she ever expected to about her own past--and about the future of her people. If they are all to survive, they'll need to reclaim the memories, reclaim their identity--and own who they really are. Inspired by a song produced by the rap group Clipping for the This American Life episode "We Are In The Future," The Deep is vividly original and uniquely affecting.… (mais)

Imagine if all of the pregnant slaves thrown overboard during the horrific middle passage went on to have children that survived and built a society underwater. That's the premise of The Deep, a book inspired by a rap song by Daveed Diggs' group Clipping. The story reminds me a bit of The Giver, with one individual in the society carrying the painful memories of their history. I read this after visiting the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and had all of that history fresh in my mind, which gave the story an even deeper impact.

“What is belonging?” we ask. She says, “Where loneliness ends.”

“The deep will be our sibling, our parent, our relief from endless solitude. Down here, we are wrapped up. Down here, we can pretend the dark is the black embrace of another.” ( )

Yetu holds the memories for her people - water-dwelling descendants of pregnant African slave women thrown overboard by slave owners - who live idyllic lives in the deep. Their past, too traumatic to be remembered regularly, is forgotten by everyone, save one - the historian. This demanding role has been bestowed on Yetu.

Yetu remembers for everyone, and the memories, painful and wonderful, traumatic and terrible and miraculous, are destroying her. And so, she flees to the surface, escaping the memories, the expectations, and the responsibilities - and discovers a world her people left behind long ago.

Yetu will learn more than she ever expected to about her own past - and about the future of her people. If they are all to survive, they’ll need to reclaim the memories, reclaim their identity - and own who they really are.

Inspired by a song produced by the rap group Clipping for the This American Life episode "We Are in the Future", The Deep is vividly original and uniquely affecting.

What do I even say about this book? It’s magical, heartwrenching, thoughtful, provoking, and reads with just enough adventure that the strong themes don’t become overwhelming and obvious. We are sent deep below the waves, to the kingdom of the wajinru, a race of mer-people who are the offspring of pregnant slave women thrown overboard during transit to the Americas. From this violent and unexpected beginning the wajinru have risen to become a unique society far separated from the human race, and yet they still face similar troubles. Their major difference (besides the fact that they are more communal, having taken on the characteristics of sea creatures) is that their collective memory of their history is kept by only one wajinru - the historian. The story we read is led by one of their historians, Yetu, and through Yetu’s rebellion against her role we explore themes of collective suffering, historical remembrance, and individuality. This story is clearly a poignant commentary on the slave trade, and its longstanding emotional and intellectual impact on the Black population, but told through this unexpected lens we are given new perspectives. Throughout the story we see pain, so much pain, through Yetu’s suffering as carrier of the wajinru’s painful and violent history, but we also see hope spring through her pain. Yetu abandons the annual remembrance ceremony in the hope that she will be able to lessen her own suffering and become herself once again, leaving her people to suffer in her stead. And yet, out of her act of selfishness we see the wajinru grow and accept that their method of curbing the pain in short term does nothing towards ultimately healing. We are left not knowing how the wajinru (and Yetu) carry out the rest of their days, but the message of growth leaves us with a feeling of hope towards the future. The novel may be pegged as fantasy by some, but its message is as strong as anything I’ve read and is absolutely poised to become a seminal novel in the years to come. ( )

The story is a beautiful representation of how history and culture lives amongst its people and how important this can be. How important it is to also (re)live the painful parts of your history too, as they're a part of you. It represents a search for identity and your own place in the world and your culture.
Also amazing own voices non-binary prep, i really loved how the book applied this.

This was an interesting own-voices book, however i don't recommend listening this as an audiobook, because I could not follow that well. ( )

Interesting concept.
Tediously dull writing. I quit. ( )
