Anpre Dans Tanbou Lou.
"After the dance the drum is heavy" said in Haitian Creole, the language of the first free black republic, starting in 1801. America has always been a country in bondage. This weekend, there are white nationalists in my city, congregating at my Metro stop. In protest, these poems are tales of black resistance and power in a time of struggle, especially the impossible tales of a island like Haiti. #Resist #SaloonSundays
