Check out my latest project:

The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story

This new book substantially expands on The New York Times Magazine’s award-winning “1619 Project” issue by weaving together eighteen essays that explore the legacy of slavery in present-day America with thirty-six poems and works of fiction that illuminate key moments of oppression, struggle, and resistance.
