About the Author:

Suheir Hammad's books include breaking poems, ZaatarDiva and Drops of This Story. An original writer and performer in the TONY awarded Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry Jam on Broadway, Suheir appears in the Cannes Film Festival Official Selection, Salt of This Sea. She has delivered her poetry to folk around the world.

Review:

The true manifest destiny of Suheir Hammad is to raise her searing vigorous voice, a brave flag over the dispossessed to sing stories of indelible origin and linkage to remind struggling humankind, whatever color or cultural root: We will hold on, we will never be gone. What s more, we will shine the light on one another! --Naomi Shihab Nye, Habibi

Suheir Hammad has given us a collection of poems that have their roots in a land near the edge of the sea. Here is the voice of one woman who has not forgotten the plight of her people. Born Palestinian, Born Black is about culture, conflict, and consciousness. The poems are political, but then we are in need of such thingsâ ¦ I was born black, and Suheir Hammad has taught me what it means to be Palestinian. People must continue to learn from each other. This book opens a door. --E. Ethelbert Miller, Board Chair, Institute for Policy Studies
