In Love Rise Up, readers will find genuine hope and inspired art in these lyrics, a desire to show the humanity behind the struggle for social justice. With courage, foresight, and even a good dose of humor, the poems in this collection address the causes and concerns of generations past and present, revealing ways to combat adversity with strength and integrity. Beginning with classic poets like Langston Hughes and highly-acclaimed, established poets including Sherman Alexie, Patricia Smith, and Martín Espada, Love Rise Up also celebrates new, emerging or never before published writers such as Gabriela Erandi Rico, Shirley Geok-lin Lim, and Patricia Jabbeh Wesley. With subjects ranging from the early Civil Rights movement to Occupy Wall Street and beyond, Love Rise Up offers a vivid portrait of resistance, triumph, compassion, and an eternal belief that our futures can be changed for the better.
