Description
"Black Wounds is a provocative and challenging exploration on many current toxic issues. The book is a hybrid of original poems (to express moods and emotions) and researched based narratives (to present facts and views). It is a raw, in your face, and unfiltered window into the social, racial, political, and economic injustices, disparities, challenges, and realities of being Black in America and the lasting wounds that can be inflicted. It serves as a bridge from the historical conflicts and injustices to their continuation and how they still plague Black America today. It’s inspired by true historical and recent events of a people who refuse to be beaten down or accept being treated with indignation, disrespect, genocide, and second-class citizenship. Although there are many tears, wounds, and scars carried from generation to generation, there is still an explosive energy, perseverance, hopefulness, revolutionary pulse, and unyielding pursuit for justice, equality, and freedom. I wrote this book because I love America and believe in her endearing principles and boundless potential. However, I also believe that Power never concedes power without a fight, without a true revolution by the oppressed. Justice and freedom for the oppressed should never depend solely on the mercy of the oppressor, but also on their own intentional actions. The secret to happiness is freedom and the secret to freedom is courage." --back cover
