Maxine Beneba Clarke, a writer and slam poet champion of Afro-Caribbean descent, is the author of The Patchwork Bike, illustrated by Van Thanh Rudd. About When We Say Black Lives Matter, she says: “I see this picture book as an act of Black love—I was inspired to write and create it when thinking about how to explain the concept of Black Lives Matter to the young African diaspora kids in my extended family, living in over eight different countries across the world.” Maxine Beneba Clarke lives in Australia.
