Book launch: t’ai freedom ford presents & more black
With special guests jayy dodd, francine j. harris, and Donika Kelly
Reception to follow
Cave Canem fellow t’ai freedom ford’s second collection of poems, & more black, is direct, ingenious, vibrant, alive, queer, and black – by turns tough and sexy, wrapped up in the evolving language and sonics of life. Patrick Rosal writes "These poems suffer none of the ongoing American foolishness. They snap so hard you might – as I did – jump up and run out of the room laughing at their brilliant, slicing wit. They are composed with soul and funk and lightning-fast intelligence... & more black is truth moving at the speed of sound." This launch party event features readings by fellow poets jayy dodd, francine j. harris, and Donika Kelly, as well as a presentation by ford herself, followed by a wine and cheese reception.
