“Nothing short of sublime, and the territory [Mans'] explores...couldn’t be more necessary.”—Vogue

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.

Black Girl, Call Home is a love letter to the wandering Black girl and a vital companion to any woman on a journey to find truth, belonging, and healing.

Love it!

I came across this book on a book club’s Instagram account and the cover caught my attention. Let me just say that I'm glad I bought this book and I will be reading it again! I loved it so much! I have a few favorite poems. Some poems made me cry. Overall I felt the emotions of all of them. This book was worth reading!
