Dana A modern black woman with the mannerisms of a white male, Dana constantly takes involuntary trips to the past. She is called upon to the Antebellum south to save her ancester, Rufus. Kindred begins on Jun 9, 1976, on the day of her twenty-sixth birthday. Her full name is Edana Franlkin, and she is married to Kevin, a white male, a fact that causes her much plight thoughout the course of kindred. When she is physically transported to the past, to aid her ancester, she feels physically ill, even naucious. When Dana is transported to the past, she notes that the "room seemed to blur and darken" around her (ZButler 13). Dana is called upon to save rufus, who was at the time a "small red haired boy" who was currently floating face down. After giving him artificial respiration, the fater of Rufus, Tom weyland, though that Dana was the reason why his son was unconcious, whereupon she was threatened with a rifle. At the time, she found that the fear of death had the power of transporting her back to the future, with her husband panic.
The dooky cover picture is significantly over-saturated. The purple is much closer to grey on the actual cover.Stale Fries 03:18, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
