About the Author

"In Psalms of My People the transcendent poetry that undergirds all of duncan's prose is brought front and center to comfort and challenge the reader in ways only art can. duncan weaves together hip-hop, scripture, history, and their own experiences with soft tenderness and sharp critique. It's both delicious and, at times, bitter; full of the contradictions we see reflected in all sacred texts and pregnant with possibilities for transformation." --Elle Dowd, pastor, activist, and author of Baptized in Tear Gas: From White Moderate to Abolitionist

"lenny duncan has masterfully channeled a fierce incantation for unearthing and rebirthing--as a reader you can't help but be changed by it. A poetic keening in the company of Ginsberg's 'Howl.'" --Joanna Garner, senior story creative director at Meow Wolf

"This piece welcomes you in, whispering words you thought only lovers had for you. It then spits back at you the dribble of what you think you know, asking the reader to listen to a deeper, quieter place in themself and grasp something that has always felt out of reach and yet, in some ways, has always been known. As with everything lenny does, this book is a healing that will call people home." --Lisa Sanaye Dring, writer, director, and actor
