Abstract: 
"A Call to Action is a poignant and uncompromising analysis of the criminal/justice system which spends millions of dollars annually, and controls the lives of approximately one million inmates--of which nearly two-thirds are Black and members of other non-white groups. Of particular concern is the over-representation of Black men who traverse the criminal justice system as though it was especially designed for them."

Panic Kit

Book, Lionello, Laura A.
Date: 
May 2011

First Printing
Abstract: 
"The poems in 'Panic Kit' are of the lower chakras, golden in craft and invention and brandishing the broad whip of suffering across the face of what it means to be human. Still, these poems have been tenderized by the effect of Lionello's flights for survival, buoyed by embodied hope and love..." -Peggy Dobreer, poet
