Read full description of the books Immigration Essays:

When Sybil Baker received a MakeWork grant to
write about Chattanooga’s unheard voices, she had no
idea that her project would take her from the homes
of Chattanooga’s refugees in “Landings” to what
Critical Flame calls a “Sebaldian travelogue through
the Syrian migration route” in “Reverse Migration.”
“Adventures of a Fake Immigrant” and “Schemers”
examine her ambivalent complicity in Chattanooga’s
rapid gentrification and the erasure of its historically
Black neighborhoods.

From her childhood home near Ferguson, Missouri,
to her travels as an expatriate living in Asia, to the
troubled cities of Eastern Europe, Baker explores the
physical and emotional wanderings of what Mary
McCarthy calls “exiles, expatriates, and internal
emigres.”

Using photos, literature, and her own family’s slave-owning
history, Baker excavates her past as well as
Chattanooga’s to try and understand the ghosts that
haunt her and the city she inhabits. With a poignancy
particularly relevant for these times, the voices in this
collection echo through the text and shine brightly
through the dark.
