Scars/Stars: Walidah Imarisha

Walidah Imarisha (local writer/activist/teacher) has just released her first book of poetry.   The Women of Color Zine group interviewed Ms. Imarisha for our zine collective (Issue #4).

As described on Amazon:

“In her book Beloved , Toni Morrison describes the whip scars on a former slave’s back as a tree sprouting from her flesh. Walidah Imarisha’s first poetic collection Scars/Stars invokes this same process of alchemy, transforming both individual and collective scars into North Stars, guideposts that center us and keep us moving in the right direction. Scars/Stars reminds us that even in ravaged earth, something beautiful can still grow.”


It sounds like a great read!!
