With fierce candor and an unflinching eye, the highly praised author of Push journeys through the harsh realities of African American existence to find the door to the possibility of now. The heroes that emerge from these forty-seven vigorous poemsMoreWith fierce candor and an unflinching eye, the highly praised author of Push journeys through the harsh realities of African American existence to find the door to the possibility of now. The heroes that emerge from these forty-seven vigorous poems confront the agony of betrayal as they strive in their quest for self-transformation and redemption.From the city streets to the rich landscape of dreams, each of these poems holds out the black wings of expectation offering the chance to emerge from the pain of the past and arrive at the day you have been waiting for/when you would finally begin to live. At turns alarming and inspiring, the raw lyrics and piercing wisdom of Black Wings & Blind Angels remind us of Sapphires place as a unique and fearless voice.
