Momma, I Told You To Write
By Gladys Alex
There’s History in Every Picture Frame
This book reflects moments, experiences, and issues in black society. Cataloged in the written word of poetry, it explores character flaws and inspires ambitions from teens to adults.
In a montage of different times and places, this black journey is taken in areas of education and family relations. Poems such as “Curses” and “Freedom Don’t Ring” beat at the soul and unmask imperfections in the black community while celebrating the joys and pains that relate to the black experience. With a boldness in character, they remain triumphant in spirit using life as a trampoline to their awakening in poems like “Done”, “Summary”, and “Fly Swatter After Me.”
