Raising questions like, “What happens after breathing becomes a privilege?” and making statements like, “America is the abusive mother I never should have had” this collection of poems and stories depicts Kristin’s own personal and political journeys (which are still in progress) and covers a variety of important topics including but not limited to the activism of occupy and black lives matter movements, sexuality, family heritage, nationality, body image, history and current events all through the lens of Black womanhood. The proceeds from any copies of this book sold off of freedomlovebirthright.com website will go to the Birthright program. cost $15 (buy now, +$4 shipping)
