About the Book

Published posthumously, this powerful second collection is a raw dialogue about being black in today's society, exploring injustices survived by using a dream-like consciousness to take on multiple personas: DiVida, who wants to assimilate into the larger culture, and Sapphire, who refuses to follow at the expense of her self-actualization.

About the Book

Di-vida: a divided life. Poems from the American frontlines where black identities are swarmed, accruing different personas to survive.
