Delicia Daniels

THROUGH THE SPIRITS OF A litany of African Americans, both famous and relatively unknown to the general public, and allusions to a number of horrifying events, both historical and recent, which have ravaged African Americans throughout the United States, Daniels relates the hardships and undaunted resilience of not only her own race but of oppressed peoples everywhere. Her disturbing and gut-wrenching subject matter belies the mellifluous, haunting beauty of her poetic diction.
