Poetry. African & African American Studies. California Interest. Curated by Tureeda Mikell. Cover art by John Sims. The PATRICE LUMUMBA anthology collects the liberatory words of 24 authors, many of whom call Oakland, California, home. Herein are explorations of contemporary colonization, the racial/physical/mental/physic abuses of power, locations of home, alternative modes of work, the health profession, and the healing powers of history. These poems are a call to action for collective change—now.
