Author: Roberto Carlos Garcia

Poet, storyteller, and essayist Roberto Carlos Garcia is a self-described "sancocho [...] of provisions from the Harlem Renaissance, the Spanish Poets of 1929, the Black Arts Movement, the Nuyorican School, and the Modernists." Garcia is rigorously interrogative of himself and the world around him, conveying "nakedness of emotion, intent, and experience," and he writes extensively about the Afro-Latinx and Afro-diasporic experience. His third poetry collection, [ELEGIES] (2020), is available through FlowerSong Press. His second poetry collection, black / Maybe: An Afro Lyric, is available from Willow Books. Roberto's first collection, MELANCOLIA (2016), is available from Červená Barva Press.
