About Eve's Song:

Eve's Song is a stunning, genre-bending new drama about the haunting of a black family in America. In the aftermath of a messy divorce and a daughter coming out as queer, Deborah is trying to keep things normal at home. But as black people continue to be killed beyond their four walls, the outside finds its way in, blurring the lines between family dynamics, politics, and the spirit world. How long can family dinners keep the dangers outside at bay? Filled with dark humor and boiling suspense, Eve's Song examines our present racial climate through the eyes of a regular American family.

Our Eve's Song Review

Patricia Ione Lloyd’s Eve’s Song is a searing exposé of what it means to be black and female in America today. Much has been talked, written and protested about the perils of young black men in this country recently, with good reason.
