    i would be interested in having a dialogue with hammad about the cultural property of language the aave used throughout some of the poems seemed to me like a muddling and appropriation of a culture oppression generational trauma that one merely decides to identify with because of parrallels to ones own culture oppression generational traumathis was a source of discomfort.

    Suheir Hammad is someone who crossed my path quite by accident in a bookstore in the mid 1990s There I espied her book of poems, Born Palestinian, Born Black I glanced at some of the poems and liked their content Then several years elapsed before Suheir Hammad came to the fore of consciousness again And that was when I saw her on CSPAN as part of a forum Now that I ve just finished reading this book of poems, I feel that I have been witness to a conscious and prophetic voice speaking in c Suheir Hammad is someone who crossed my path quite by accident in a bookstore in the mid 1990s There I espied her book of poems, Born Palestinian, Born Black I glanced at some of the poems and liked their content Then several years elapsed before Suheir Hammad came to the fore of consciousness again And that was when I saw her on CSPAN as part of a forum Now that I ve just finished reading this book of poems, I feel that I have been witness to a conscious and prophetic voice speaking in clear and at times raw language of the struggles of oppressed peoples both here in the U.S and in the Middle East What Hammad expresses in this book, everyone needs to read and strive to understand There is one poem, in particular, in this book that deeply resonated with me Its title is Manifest Destiny , a term I first learned of as a childthan 40 years ago But did not come to fully comprehend til I began seriously studying American history in high school It is a title that defines the vision the U.S had of itself in the 19th century as a nation with a messianic mission to establish itself as a continental nation spanning both the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts From sea to shining sea Without further ado, here are the words from Manifest Destiny that left their mark on me a short time ago in a state of police cops act as pigs treat men as dogs mothers as whoresthe bold youth of a nation hungry and coldan entire nation of youth behind bars grown oldthe mace and blood did not blind wewitness and demand a return to humanity we braid resistance through our hair pierce justice through our ears tattoo freedom onto our breasts we be political prisoners walking round semi freeour very breath is a threatto those we rather we not readand think analyze watch out and fight backand be human beings the way we need to be Seldom were truer words spoken, given the state of the world today on New Year s Day, 2019 BORN PALESTINIAN, BORN BLACK The Gaza Suite should be read and re read by anyone concerned both in the mind and in praxis with the ongoing issues of life, justice, education, and freedom who believe that the world can be made better by humanity for the benefit of all life now and in the future

    I really expected to like this I love the Suheir Hammad poems I ve heard on Def Poetry Jam and TED Her gorgeous delivery is definitely a factor, and maybe in part I just read too much work in this genre so my expectations are overblown, but I don t think it s just that these poems seemed a bit same ish, in content and tone, like one long righteous wail and I didn t love it There are some standout lines I ll go through it later to pick out my favourites but as a whole I was disappointed.

  5. says:

    I love Suheir Hammad She s one of the best poetsand one of the most inspiring But her poems are better performed than just read One needs to read a poem twice to catch the beauty and deepness of her writings I found some of the poems quite amature as they were written back in the late 90s But for those interested in poetryit s a must read, and a must have.

    Having trouble finding this one

  7. says:

    Good, though having read fabulous Zaatardiva, I appreciate the maturity she grew into, both in content and style.

  8. says:

    The usage of aave and literal slurs that did not belong to Hammad bothered me immensely, taking me out of the text each instance If not for this I would have loved this work Will finish review later.

  9. says:

    Her poetry isn t my thing but I liked good word, scarlet rain, exotic, ismi, fascism is in fashion
