This is the original publication of the revolutionary collection of poetry from Pat Parker. These poems are drawn out of Parker’s manifold perspective, speaking from the chorusing voices of a black woman, lesbian, mother, activist, and writer. The poems, written plainly and from autobiographical experience, inspire a spirit of intersectionality and possibility on all planes of being in the world. An accessible text illuminating complexities on the levels of both language and society, Parker’s poetry is an invitation to consider the potential for movement between the personal and the political. Includes the original publication catalogue by Diana Press, featuring works by Pat Parker along with Judy Graham.
