Today, light Reader,
the sermon once more: "Segregation
After Death." Showers within the a.m.
The risk they are saying is relocating from the east.
The sheriff's membership says now not now. Not
nokindofhow. no longer by no means. The children's
minds say by no means waver. Air
fanned via a flock of arms within the old
funeral domestic the place the meetings
were known as [because Mrs. Oliver
owned it loose and clear], and
that selfsame air, sanctified
and doomed, lease with racism, and
it percolates up from the soil itself . . .

In this nationwide e-book Award finalist and nationwide booklet Critics Circle Award finalist, C.D. Wright returns to her local Arkansas and examines explosive incidents grounded within the Civil Rights move. In her signature variety, Wright interweaves oral histories, hymns, lists, interviews, newspaper bills, and private memories—especially these of her incandescent mentor, Mrs. Vittitow—with the voices of witnesses, buddies, police, and activists. This historical past leaps howling off the page.

C.D. Wright has released over a dozen works of poetry and prose. between her honors are the Griffin Poetry Prize and a MacArthur Fellowship. She teaches at Brown collage and lives outdoor of windfall, Rhode Island.
