About this product
- DescriptionA raw hipness steeped in love - lyric urban poetry from an urgent voice. Writing from the traditions of Langston Hughes, Ralph Ellison and James Baldwin, Ewuare Osayande has created an explosive beauty from the grim promises of Philadelphia. Osayande's poetry offers an unflinching critique of racism, sexism, hypocrisy and patriarchy. Singing in tones and textures woven from the living voices of black ancestry, touched by jazz and bled through hip hop tones to a throbbing music of a new generation of street speech, his verses point from the stones and bones of cities and history to the hard road to liberation. He speaks in lessons and examples of history and future, tearing at the ravages of global capitalism in demand for justice. The teaching of BloodLluxury is simple. A people can be its brother's or sister's keeper or it can become their oppressors. Unity and a chance for redemption can be dragged from the imposing mire of the city street and its concrete monument to the destruction that civilisation has perpetrated on older ways of being. These are important poems - poems a people can live by.
- Author BiographyEwuare Osayande is a poet and political activist. He is co-founder of P.O.W.E.R. (People Organised Working to Eradicate Racism) and creator of Project ONUS: Redefining Black Manhood.
