The Stars With You (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
"She didn't choose her garden" opens this chapbook exploring Black womanhood, mental and physical health, spirituality, and ancestral roots. It is an investigation of how to locate a self amidst complex racial history and how to forge an authentic way forward. There's internal slippage as the subject weaves between the presence and spirits of others, as well as a reckoning with the toll of navigating this world as a Black woman. Yet, we also see hopefulness: a refuge in becoming part of the collective, beyond individuality. The Stars With You gives us a speculative yearning for what is to come and probes what is required to reach it.
