    Paperback Description:

    From spoken word poet Jasmine Mans comes an unforgettable poetry collection about race, feminism, and queer identity.

    With echoes of Gwendolyn Brooks and Sonia Sanchez, Mans writes to call herself—and us—home. Each poem explores what it means to be a daughter of Newark, and America—and the painful, joyous path to adulthood as a young, queer Black woman.

    Black Girl, Call Home is a love letter to the wandering Black girl and a vital companion to any woman on a journey to find truth, belonging, and healing.

    “Each poem is a meditation on a moment, a memory, and a history that guides the reader through the experience of Black womanhood in a way I’ve not experienced before. These poems both explode and glimmer on the page. They demand to be read, to be shared, to be revisited time and time again.”
    Clint Smith, #1 New York Times bestselling author of How the Word Is Passed

    “You are carrying in your hands a Black woman’s heart.”
    Jericho Brown, author of Pulitzer Prize winner The Tradition
