BLACK GIRL, CALL HOME

by | Read by Jasmine Mans

Poetry & Drama • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Spoken-word poet Jasmine Mans narrates her poetry collection. This audiobook serves as a call to oneself and a return to one's truth. Mans speaks openly and honestly about race, womanhood, sexuality, and family. She begins with a list poem about her hair. Her words are thick and intentionally punctuated. She is clear, strong, and purposeful in both content and tone. Although the poetry may hit one's gut, her delivery is matter of fact. Her tone gives conviction to what she has experienced and who she has become. Some may call this work spoken-word art, but Mans's poetry moves beyond stage performance. She weaves words in ways that allow listeners to internalize her powerful journey. T.E.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
