A compelling poem that encapsulates the spirit of endurance by naming myriad schemes of oppression while exalting the capacity to conquer them all!

Tremendous work that looks at the endless attempts to keep a proud people enslaved to a brutal system of White supremacy and enslavement yet fails in the face of their raised voices and solidarity. Kudos to Dee Allen a great poet!

Dee Allen's poetry is not for the faint of heart. It is for anyone who has experienced life in the presence of tooth and claw, who knows injustice when seen, and appreciates the printed/spoken words to point it out again, and to not just bring injustice to light, but keep it there. Bravo, Dee Allen!!
