Reviews

A harrowing yet hopeful book about race * Observer *
A stirring anthology that takes more cues from Baldwin than just its title ... Every poem and essay in Ward's volume remains grounded in a harsh reality * New York Review of Books *
Mixing anecdote, humour, passion, fear, anger and a call to arms, it's a powerful read -- Unmissable Books to Read this Spring * Stylist *
Powerful ... Alive with purpose, conviction and intellect * New York Times *
To Baldwin's call we now have a choral response - one that should be read by every one of us committed to the cause of equality and freedom -- Jelani Cobb, Professor of Journalism at Columbia University
This is a book to pick up and tuck under our hearts to see what we can build -- Nikki Giovanni, poet
With this gorgeous chorus - Ward has done the same [as her ancestors]: she has created a world, a space, the one she, herself, was seeking. A new type of belonging, a new place to belong, is exactly what she has given us * LA Review of Books *
This is a book that seeks to place the shock of our own times into historical context and, most importantly, to move these times forward * Vogue *
