These narrative poems tell the day-to-day lives of Black New Orleans and the rare magic in the culture. Vibrant with local history and colour, these poems have a Black sensibility that reaches beyond boundaries, with folk sayings turned into polished verse. From Black talk to verse forms, Mona Lisa Saloy never loses sight of the African American cultural roots of her community. She makes music in verse.
