"Around the void left by the murder of Medgar Evers in 1963, the poems in this collection speak, unleashing the strong emotions both before and after the moment of assassination...the poems accumulate facets of the love and hate with which others saw this man, unghosting him in a way that only imagination makes possible" (The University of Georgia Press, 2013).


Seekers Book Club is a monthly book discussion group that reads classic and contemporary works by African American authors. The series is a partnership between Johnson City Public Library and the Langston Centre.
