Book Review: Graffiti Mural by Eartha Watts Hicks
Graffiti Mural by Eartha Watts Hicks
This collection of poetry, creative non-fiction, and fiction excerpts drew me in immediately, and kept my attention throughout. Writing in her distinctive style, Eartha pens real life scenarios from different perspectives that I’m sure most Black people can relate to. She doesn’t just write about issues; she offers solutions with such clarity the words could have easily come from someone much older. Between the pages of this compilation is the cleansing breath many have been waiting for to validate our experiences as a people, as women, as men, as the unique individuals we all are. Thank you!
I urge any lover of words to give this book a try.
