EWUARE X. OSAYANDE
POWER. PURPOSE. INTEGRITY.
"Ewuare Osayande is brilliant and compelling. His criticism is passionate and captures the anguish and urgency of the contemporary crisis in African American life. A powerful voice in the tradition of David Walker, Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X."
"Ewuare Osayande, through his work, gives us an unrestrained, honest, informed, disciplined, and challenging analysis. Here is a Black man who lovingly critiques our communities with the disciplined distance necessary for individual and communal transformation.”
"Passionate, provocative, evocative, insightful and always truthful, Osayande's work stands as one of the best examples of prophetic criticism that speaks not only to, and from, the contemporary Africana urban experience, but to anyone interested in the struggle for human liberation."
“Ewuare Osayande’s poems are anthems for 21st Century Black folk, Harriet Tubman’s rifle behind our backs in the swamp. His work reminds us that the poet, not the politician, is our pilot of social consciousness. No injustice escapes his pen.”
