Reviews

"This beautiful set of reflections on being Haitian, being a black woman by the artist-scholar Gina Athena Ulysse, goes beyond the disciplinary divides established by colonial epistemologies to explore a decolonial space in which poetry becomes philosophy, and anthropology helps us remember our ancestral stories and practices. This is a brave and necessary exploration."--Diana Taylor, New York University
