ABOUT THE BOOK:
Hope Wabuke weaves together a coming-of-age narrative: a Black girl child of immigrants fleeing from genocidal terror to America.
This visceral and revelatory poetry collection tells the story of a family’s journey to flee the murderous reign of Uganda’s Idi Amin only to land in a racist American landscape. Wabuke digs deeply into a personal and ancestral history to bring these poems to life, articulating what it means to live in a Black female body navigating a diaspora haunted by British colonization and American enslavement.
