And We Rise

And We Rise is a powerful telling of the Civil Rights Movement in verse. Words matter and these poems go beyond just Dr. King and Rosa Parks; they tell of the marches, the murders, the mayhem, the injustices and more. Told in a linear fashion, the poems march right alongside the movement that they are discussing. The layout of the poems is meaningful and add extra layers to the intensity of what is being said. Peppered throughout the poetry are photos from the Civil Rights Movement. Extremely powerful.
