Autobiographical
Fiction
  • Your Blues Ain't Like Mine (1993)
    Chicago-born Amrstrong Todd is fifteen, black, and unused to the ways of the segregated Deep South, when his mother sends him to spend the summer with relatives in rural Mississippi. For speaking a few innocuous words in French to a white woman, Armstrong is killed. And the precariously balanced world and its determined people - white and black - are changed, then and forever, by the horror of poverty, the legacy of justice, and the singular gift of love's power to heal.

  • Brothers and Sisters (1995)
    Brothers and Sisters is set in the white-hot center of racially troubled Los Angeles, still healing from the deep scars of riot, violence, and suspicion. At the story's heart is Ester Jackson, a banker, whose loyalties are tested when she is forced to choose between commitment to a white co-worker and loyalty to the black man her friend accuses of sexual harassment. With a view both compassionate and honest, Campbell probes the hearts and minds of whites and people of color, addressing Rodney King's question: "Can't we all get along?"

  • Singing in the Comeback Choir (1998)
    Witty, warm, wise, and wonderful, this new novel takes us into the lives of two unforgettable women: Maxine, who thinks she has it all, and her grandmother Lindy, a once-brilliant singer who' s about to give Maxine a lesson in faith, commitment--and comebacks...

  • What You Owe Me (2002)

Using Gilda's knowledge of cosmetics and Hosanna's energy and determination, they go into business together and become dear friends. Sweeping across fifty years of African-American history, What You Owe Me is a tale of bitter betrayal, righteous outrage, unpaid debts and thwarted love. But ultimately, it is a wise and moving story of healing reconciliation.

  • 72 Hour Hold (2005)

But Annie's grandma helps her remember what to do when her mommy isn't well, and her silly friends are there to cheer her up. And no matter what, Annie knows that even when Mommy is angry on the outside, on the inside she never stops loving her.
