Product Description

Wanda Coleman – Black And Blue News – Cassette

Dutch East India Records

Identifying herself as an L. A. poet, Wanda Coleman not only grew up in Los Angeles, California, but also uses that city as her primary urban setting for the raw, imagistically graphic, and politically charged poetry and short stories that she writes. Desiring to rehumanize the dehumanized, Coleman focuses upon the lives of the down and out; thus she populates her texts with working-class individuals struggling against daily indignities and social outcasts struggling simply to survive. The primary voice represented in her poems is that of the African American woman whose head is bloodied but unbowed, who is just as tough as the harsh city in which she lives.
