Poetry collection by Bro Yao (Hoke S. Glover)
“Bro Yao’s... long awaited first collection of poetry is a lyrical anthem of tradition, respect, and cultural history. Grounded in family and the revolutionary magic of Black survival in the West, Glover’s voice is mature and courageous. It walks the path of Henry Dumas but also recalls Toomer’s Cane and Walker’s For My People. Forceful and exacting, this is a voice of a poet sharing his personal ‘sankofa’ in verse, a wondrous journery that will inspire the generations and carve out a unique space in African American letters.”
–Brian Gilmore, author of We Didn’t Know Any Gangsters
