Poetry. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. LGBTQIA Studies. Winner of the 2020 LAMBA Literary Award for Lesbian Poetry. Nominated for a 2020 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for Poetry. t'ai freedom ford's second collection of poems, & MORE BLACK, is direct, ingenious, vibrant, alive, queer, & BLACK. By turns tough and sexy, wrapped up in the evolving language and sonics of life, these poems take their cue from Wanda Coleman's American Sonnets as they rhapsodize and dialogue with artists such as Carrie Mae Weems, Glenn Ligon, and Wangechi Mutu, along with many other musicians, artists, and writers. The kinetic energy of ford's words leap off the page in rebellious, stunning, and revelatory fashion-poems that mesmerize with sheer velocity and telling pauses.
