black ivory: a collection of poems by Karega Ani by Karega Ani,Robert Hodge,Michon Benson,Sunni Patterson PDF

By Karega Ani,Robert Hodge,Michon Benson,Sunni Patterson

In his debut poetry assortment, black ivory, Karega Ani offers an unflinching, and from time to time, scathing critique of yankee politics, racism, felony justice, jingoism, faith, identification, and hypocrisy.

From hide to hide, black ivory serves as a liberation roadmap. it's a conflict cry for the disenfranchised (see Conspiracy Realists), a rekindled fireplace for the disaffected (see The legislation of Opposites), a glimpse into the mysteries of the ostensibly banal (see Silent Majority), and lots more and plenty, a lot more.

'Sankofa' is the traditional African idea that one needs to occasionally consult with the earlier as a way to have a clearer figuring out of the current and a clearer heading in the direction of the longer term. In essence, one needs to occasionally bring up the useless to avoid wasting the dwelling - now not an exercise for the faint of center.

Karega Ani isn't really faint of heart.

As such, black ivory isn't a doe-eyed number of beautiful phrases and hackneyed strategies. Black Ivory is what occurs whilst phrases are weaponized. it really is Baraka, and Hughes, and Sundiata, and Giovanni, and Oyewole, and, Wells, and the collective yell of the unvoiced.

black ivory is protest poetry.

It is the density of a useless superstar - a succinct screed screamed into pressure thick air. it's acerbic, irreverent, historical, and prophetic. it really is offended in a such a lot punctual method, and it'll be undying till instances ultimately switch.

Hopefully, the contents of this booklet will serve to render the contents of this ebook obsolete.
