To Love While Black Is to Riot Paperback – September 24, 2020

by Regina Williams  (Author)


Fire is unstoppable. It is raw, godly in power, and spreads to everything it touches. It is inherently dangerous. Fire lines the pages of this book like the road to perdition. It is lingering on every word, every phrase, every mention of love or love lost. It is inescapable and raging. It is the screaming call of a nation that has been beaten and abused. It is the swaying flame of a people with love flowing through their veins who have remained silent in the face of injustice. The Liberty Bell has gone up in flames and the world is watching. The matches have been lit and the fire is spreading. Are you ready to face the fire?

The single greatest work of poetry that I have ever read. To Love While Black Is To Riot is a haunting commentary on the Black experience in America. The author is able to capture such raw emotion and present it as a mural of love, pain, and hope. This collection is a masterclass on poetic justice.
