A Garden of Black Joy: Global Poetry from the Edges of Liberation and Living. Poems, interviews, and essays that spotlight black joy not only as a resource of abundance, but as a mode of self-defense. Poets from Berlin to Kiambu, Antwerp, London, and beyond provide a sketch of what black joy means in this moment and how to make use of it in the name of the future.
Featuring poets such as Julian Randall Quintin Collins, Tara Betts, and Donte Collins, this collection invites voyages to new worlds and new languages to combat constraints and say yes to possibility
