I get sent a lot of stuff by artists promoting themselves and honestly, most of it just becomes a blur. If you know any thing about this blog you know that I give more priority to artists who have substance behind their creations and who actually put their soul into their product. In this case, I present to you Black Girl’s Hearts in a Poem. It’s a poetry book written by Tira Adams (Brooklyn, New York), Deanna Clark (Newark, New Jersey), and Shanta Duck (Saint Albans, New York) in an effort to shed light on the ups and downs of what it is to be a Black girl in the world we live in today, but the purpose is to come from a place that relates to women of all backgrounds.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release: Sonia Sanchez once said, â€œPoetry is subconscious conversation; it is as much the work of those who understand it and those who make itâ€; as such, the poems expressed by these three authors in Black Girlsâ€™ Hearts In A Poem are indeed pertinent for young women and readers alike.
All too often, young women, especially young women of color, are forced to deal with harsh realities such as rape, molestation, insecurities, abandonment, mental and physical abuse, untrustworthiness, disloyalties, and so much more. While these unfortunate circumstances are prominent in their households and communities, for whatever reason, there is very little dialogue and effort to address such matters. The unfortunate reality is that many young women are shameful of their troubles which consequently hinder the movement of social change and societal enhancement. The poems written in Black Girlsâ€™ Hearts In A Poem will provide a sense of guidance and inspiration for young women; it will provide a sense of comfort allowing readers to know that they or whomever they know are not alone when facing such ill-fated experiences.
This is the first book published by Kani Publishing Inc.
