Abstract: 
Poetry. African American Studies. Peformance Studies. TWERK unveils an identity shaped by popular media and history, code switching and cultural inclusivity. The poems, songs, and myths in this long-awaited first book are as rooted in lyric as in innovation, in Black music as in macaronic satire. TWERK evokes paradox, humor, and vulnerability, and it offers myriad avenues fueled by language, idiom, and vernacular. This book asks only that we imagine America as it has always existed, an Americana beyond the English language.

Poetry by African-American female writer. From back cover:" This long-awaited compendium of works by LaTasha N.

With dazzling rigor and imagination, Ms. Diggs shares with us a view from Harlem that shines a knowing light on every place in the observable universe.

Rust Belt Chicago: An Anthology

Rust Belt Chicago: An Anthology

Catalog Number: 
Book Rust
Date: 
2017
Abstract: 
Chicago is built on a foundation of meat and railroads and steel, but its identity long ago stretched past manufacturing. A city of opportunity from the get-go, it continues to lure new residents from around the world, and from across a region rocked by recession and deindustrialization. But the problems that plague the Belt don’t disappear once you get past Gary. In fact, they’re often amplified. Chicago’s glittering downtown towers stand in sharp contrast to the struggling south and west sides. A city defined by movement that’s the anchor of the Midwest, bound to its neighbors by a shared ecosystem and economy, Chicago’s complicated – both of the Belt and beyond it. Which makes it a perfect subject for a book.

2004
Edition: 
First edition
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"The collected signature poems of Billy Tuggle show the unified vision and clear voice that has carried Tuggle as a representative of Chicago into the 2004 and 2005 National Slam Poetry Championships. An accomplished vocalist and human beat-box combines the melody and rhythms of his other passions in poems that ring with the call for social justice, the tolerance for differences, and the pride in ethnic roots that is the delightful and moving legacy of a retired graffiti artist."
