Black Washed: A Collection of Essays, Poems, Dreams, and Letters Addressed to Black Folk
ON SALE MARCH 5, 2021! (PLEASE READ OUR NOTE TO CUSTOMERS BELOW)
Black Washed: A Collection of Essays, Poems, Dreams, and Letters Addressed to Black Folk is personal. This spiritually charged, thoughtful critique revels in the humane nature of Black life absent of white things through 35 chronicles from the author and foreword contributors. Dennis Maurice offers access to his heritage coming-to-be in a Black, fat, queer, Christian body in this intimate and confident collection of narratives that are elevated, weaved, and patted down by the declarations of ten Black women generously curating the foreword. This urbane coming-of-age collection is a declaration that Black life does not begin when we are oppressed, maligned, or killed and as such Black death will never be a Black nativity. Black folk are luxuriant and alive in this skin, always and in all ways.
