VAGABOND announces the launch of:




Here are the unabridged documents of what has gone down in St. Louis and the region at large – that is, bullets, long-time ago massacres, military tanks, the “brutal games” set into motion on a peoples of color, of those with few resources, a city, a state, a region cut into painful slices – you and me, by the way. Listen here.  Reflect on these poets, activists, philosophers, artists, community builders.  Unchecked power can only be challenged by heart-soul illuminations – for the people. Now open this book. You’ll find song too – “voice-lifted and wakeful rhymes,” yes, the “hope for peace” cannot be erased.  Give thanks to the ongoing work of East St. Louis Laureate Eugene B. Redmond and these brave hard-workin’ poets carving poetry news that few cover on the pages of the nation.  You got to love it.  I do.


–  Juan Felipe Herrera, Poet Laureate of the United States
