My poetry collection, A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing: The Incarceration of African American Women from Harriet Tubman to Sandra Bland, honors African American women that have experienced incarceration and other forms of oppression. A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing situates intersectionality and the legacy of resistance within the context of the prison industrial context and American culture. Some of the women in this book have organized resistance movements over the last two centuries. This collection of poems also takes into account the ripple effects and loses associated with Black Lives in America. A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing, like much of my other work, incorporates archival photos and visual culture as a form of literary remix. This technique enhances the beauty and complexity of the women in the book.
