Writer, visual artist, and editor, Manahil Bandukwala hosts a conversation with acclaimed poet and lawyer Leslie Roach on her debut collection, Finish this Sentence.  The poems examine personal experience in living with racism and healing from its distorting effects on the Self. 

 

As this book weaves through the anger and anxiety provoked by racism, it points to the ultimate realization: one is neither the conditioning nor the negative thoughts that racism provokes. Rather, one is powerful and able to arrest those thoughts.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
