Excerpt from “Bubba”


“Bubba. If you hadn’t fallen off that roof in ‘57, you would have loved the ’60s. Bubba you would have loved Malcolm. You would have plucked the light from his eyes and finally seen the world in focus. Bubba. Your footsteps sing around my waist each day. I will not let the country settle into sleep of the innocent.”

-The ever so amazing Sonia Sanchez from her book Homegirls & Handgrenades
