Beschrijving

An intensely personal and political confrontation with prejudice, hatred, and violence

In these lyrical and powerful essays, Thomas Glave draws on his experiences as a politically committed, gay Jamaican American to deliver a condemnation of the prejudices and inhumanities that persist in the United States and elsewhere. From the death of poet Essex Hemphill to the revelations of abuse at Abu Ghraib, Glave puts forth a deeply ethical understanding of human rights.

“Deepening the tradition of intellectual, imaginative dissent of writers like Édouard Glissant, Kamau Brathwaite, Frantz Fanon, and James Baldwin, Words to Our Now is an eloquent blend of personal and political imagery, of compassion and fury. Thomas Glave addresses issues crucial to citizens of this world: the endless warfare against which we live our lives, whether at home or abroad; the warfare we wage against one another. Che Guevara said that the true revolutionary is motivated by love. Words to Our Now is the work of a revolutionary mind.” – Michelle Cliff, author of Free Enterprise
