Paperback, 272 pages
In Stand Our Ground: Poems for Trayvon Martin and Marissa Alexander poets from all over the world join together in one voice for justice, freedom and peace. Stand Our Ground is the definitive anthology of a revolutionary generation. In this historic collection Black Arts Movement legends Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, Haki R. Madhubuti and Askia M. Toure are joined by poets of all ages from across the United States and around the world representing countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and North and South America and the Caribbean.
The cases of Trayvon Martin and Marissa Alexander expose the duplicity of an American justice system that remains rooted in racism and sexism. Stand Our Ground raised thousands of dollars for both campaigns and raised the consciousness of a generation toward the pursuit of a movement of justice for all.
