Black Girl, Call Home by Mans (Author), Jasmine (Author)- Paperback
Nothing short of sublime, and the territory Mans explores...couldn’t be more necessary.”—Vogue
“A tender distillation of black girlhood. Mans draws together both intricate adornment and the unvarnished truth.”—Raven Leilani, New York Times bestselling author of Luster
“Mans lucid and lyrical lines are as undeniable as those of a pop song yet as arresting as only spoken word artistry can be.”—O, the Oprah Magazine
From spoken word poet Jasmine Mans comes an unforgettable poetry collection about race, feminism, and queer identity.
With echoes of Gwendolyn Brooks and Sonia Sanchez, Mans writes to call herself—and us—home. Each poem explores what it means to be a daughter of Newark, and America—and the painful, joyous path to adulthood as a young, queer Black woman.
