A leader in the new African American Lit movement, this book intertwines past, present, music, quiet, death and life in intimate, passionate verse.
A fellow poet once described Khary Jackson as a blend of Saul Williams and Pablo Neruda, which may prove fitting given Khary’s unique aesthetic as a child of the hip hop generation with penchant for intimate, passionate verse. Jackson’s first book incorporates fantastical imagery, quiet vulnerability and a willingness to witness the rite of loss, fearlessly. He is one of the most popular authors in all of Minnesota.
