Black Girl, Call Home
By: Jasmine Mans
Narrated by: Jasmine Mans
Length: 1 hours 50 minutes
Bookseller Recommendation: “This collection. Have you ever closed a book and suddenly felt that all that you are, all that you’ve seen has somehow been made tangible through another’s voice? Have you ever felt called in to let go, to be heard, and to be seen? That is what Mans has done here. I will forever hold onto the beautiful ways in which Jasmine pulls apart and gives life to the tiny variables which contribute to the formulation of one’s blackness, queerness, and womanhood. ”—Deidre, WORD Bookstores

“You are carrying in your hands a Black woman’s heart.”—Jericho Brown, author of Pulitzer Prize winner The Tradition
“[Mans’] lucid and lyrical lines are as undeniable as those of a pop song yet as arresting as only spoken word artistry can be.”—O, the Oprah Magazine
From spoken word poet Jasmine Mans comes an unforgettable poetry collection about race, feminism, and queer identity.
With echoes of Gwendolyn Brooks and Sonia Sanchez, Mans writes to call herself—and us—home. Each poem explores what it means to be a daughter of Newark, and America—and the painful, joyous path to adulthood as a young, queer Black woman.
Black Girl, Call Home is a love letter to the wandering Black girl and a vital companion to any woman on a journey to find truth, belonging, and healing.
