Poetry. African & African American Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. Women's Studies. A visceral, incendiary debut poetry collection that tears into the thick skin of political malaise thru to the guts of history. In DON'T LET THEM SEE ME LIKE THIS, Jasmine Gibson explores myriad intersectional identities in relation to The State, disease, love, sex, failure and triumph. Speaking to those who feel disillusioned by bothradical and banal spaces and inspired/informed by moments of political crisis: Hurricane Katrina, The Jena Six, the extrajudicial killings of Black people, and the periods of insurgency that erupted in response, this book acts as a synthesis of political life and poetic form.
