“Only a poet with an innocent heart can exorcise so much pain with so much beauty."
Originally published in 1984, this collection of prose, prose poems and lyric verses is as fresh and radical today as it was then. Sonia Sanchez, the premiere poet of the Black Arts Movement, shows the "razor blades" in clenched in her teeth in these powerful pieces.
By Sonia Sanchez. Paperback. 112 pages. Published by Beacon Press, 2023.
