ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the dynamic tradition of the BreakBeat Poets anthologies, The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 4: LatiNext celebrates the embodied narratives of Latinidad. Poets speak from an array of nationalities, genders, sexualities, races, and writing styles, staking a claim to our cultural and civic space. Like Hip- Hop, we honor what was, what is, and what’s next.
