Praise For…

In Afrosynthesis Darlene Roy wields a three-by-three-way telescope: Encylopedically, experientially & experimentally she mines her first, second & third eyes for jewels of the first, second & third whirls of historical, cultural & poetic art. Refusing to stop there, she also “minds” the kitchens, sick- & prayer-rooms, juke (& painful) joints, fields & fortunes, pits & palaces into which love stumbles (or falls), socialization & racial rituals (& dangers), smorgasbords of human needs, songified folk speeches, sanctified soul reaches, language that rattles like battles &, in short, the art of living & dying. “Read her as much for her fountain of information as for her fount of poetry.” Eugene B. Redmond, Poet Laureate of East Saint Louis & Founding Editor of Drumvoices Revue
