Inspired by the #SayHerName campaign this book contains poems which pay tribute to victims of police brutality. It also celebrates the activists insisting that Black Lives Matter. Elliott includes poets of the past two centuries in order to create a chorus of voices celebrating the creativity, resilience, and courage of Black women and girls.
This collection features forty-nine powerful poems, four of which are tribute poems inspired by the works of Lucille Clifton, Audre Lorde, Nikki Giovanni, and Phillis Wheatley.
