Inspired by the #SayHerName campaign launched by the African American Policy Forum, these poems pay tribute to victims of police brutality as well as the activists insisting that Black Lives Matter. Elliott engages poets from the past two centuries to create a chorus of voices celebrating the creativity, resilience, and courage of Black women and girls.
This collection features 49 powerful poems, four of which are tribute poems inspired by the works of Lucille Clifton, Audre Lorde, Nikki Giovanni, and Phillis Wheatley. This provocative collection will move every listener to reflect, respond - and act.

Gorgeous, Powerful, Painful.
This book is full of powerful poems about Black Lives Matter, Police Brutality, Racism, Sexism, Depression, Mental Health and so so much more. It even hints Black Panther & Beyoncé songs. I, as a white person, feel once again sick to my stomach when reading about struggles BPOC have to endure, not because I don't believe them of course, but because I wish they wouldn't have to. I think this book is really helpful when it comes to educating yourself & so I recommend it to everyone who wants to do better for the BPOC. 🖤 I listened to the audiobook and I enjoyed it a lot because to me it gave the poems a different rhythm than when I would have read it by myself.
