A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing The Incarceration of African American Women from Harriet Tubman to Sandra Bland Read ✓ 104 DaMaris B. Hill ì 4 Read Arrowing at times hopeful responses to her heroes illustrated with black and white photographs throughoutFor black American women the experience of being bound has taken many forms from the bondage of slavery to the Reconstruction era criminalization of women; from the brutal constraints of Jim Crow to our own era’s prison industrial complex where between 1980 and 2014 the number of incarcerated women increased by 700% For those women who lived and died resisting the dehumanization of confinement physical soci. This compact but potent collection of poetry is so good that it hurts DeMaris B Hill spills America s historical shame across the printed page with the articulate rage and power of the generations she writes about My thanks go to Bloomsbury and Net Galley for the review copy This collection becomes available to the public January 15 2019 The keys to reading Hill s poetry are in the introduction and in additional brief introductions at the beginning of each poem These are broken down into five sections that depict the different ways in which women of color have been bound over the centuries and Hill points out that Black resistance didn t start with Black Lives Matter and it didn t start with Dr King and Rosa Parks either American Black folk have been fighting for their rights for centuries but some periods have been better publicized and widely recognized than others The introduction is not long by most standards but I found myself impatient to read poetry so halfway through it I skipped to the poetry read the collection and then I went back to reread the introduction from the beginning After that I went back over the poems a second time lingering over my favorites The review copy was a rough one and it s hard to read poetry if the spacing is whack Your copy is almost guaranteed to be cleaner but you may choose to read these than once anyway Strong poetry will do that to you Each poem is devoted to an African American woman that has fought in one way or another and the conclusion is written for Hill s son The book is billed as a collection that takes us from Harriet Tubman to Sandra Bland which it does and both of these poems are resonant and in the case of Bland achingly sorrowful My own favorites were those written about Eartha Kitt who was familiar to me and Ruby McCollum who wasn t The poem about Alice Clifton made me wish I could unread it because it is harsh and horrible but in case it wasn t clear from the get go Hill isn t writing to spare our tender feelings She s pissed and she s right to be These poems contain some of the finest figurative language I have read anywhere Highly recommended for those that seek social justice and that love excellent poetry
