Black Ballad

Black Ballad

$12.00Price

For a young Ghanaian girl who traveled from the hot winds of Accra to the pulsating rhythms of the Bronx, belonging is elusive. Torn between her desires to be West African and American at the same time, she negotiates linguistic and cultural barriers that force her to reinvent herself. Set in spaces that often drown out the songs of Black women, Black Ballad offers us poems of compassion toward womanhood, toward rediscovery in the exhaustion of migration. Afua Ansong sounds the chant of joy into existence.
