A Poetic Testament
Ewuare X. Osayande’s Our Breath is the Whisper of Our Ancestors’ Defiance is the poetic testament of the post-Civil Rights generation. Spanning 30 years and including five previously published books along with new and unpublished poems, this anthology is the crowning achievement of a poet-scribe who is a faithful witness to the freedom stride of his people. In Our Breath, Osayande is our impassioned ambassador of Blackness, extolling the virtues of justice as love in poems that read like psalms and proverbs for a world on fire.
