RISE (an anthology of Power and Unity)


Poetry. African & African American Studies. "These are songs of standing up to darkness and transforming it into music. The creative processes these poets use to channel their visionary works, are the same creative processes that we channel in revolutionary struggle in the streets or the halls of power. What is really happening behind the smoke and mirrors? Why is it happening? What—if anything—can we do about it? The poems in this anthology are forged in the politics of revolt. They are conjurations, spells to envelop our consciousness through sounds and images, music and meanings. Constructive social change needs a high level of consciousness, and these poems leave us strengthened in our struggle to leave a livable world to our grandchildren. Keep this book beside your pillow, let it fill your dreams."—John Curl
