Finding Home


Rumpus contributor Saeed Jones will be writing monthly for Ebony.

Don’t miss Jones’ Mother’s Day essay, and latest piece, “Traveling Man,” in which he sets out on a year-long journey. He will be working on a memoir as he goes.

“I’ve come home to Memphis in order to leave… I’m here because I need to convince my loved ones that, despite a rather elaborate amount of evidence to the contrary, I have not lost my mind. I’ve found it. And as Ralph Ellison wrote, ‘The end was in the beginning.’”
