June Jordan – a quote and a poem

November 26, 2012

I just finished “His Own Where”, by this amazing writer. This is a book I can’t recommend English learners to read, unless they have a consolidated Advanced level. It’s full of music and poetry. Which is to say, it’s full of life.

The book’s worth the effort to reach that level! So cheer up and work!

For the time being, here is a quote of hers we published on the Talking People Podcast and you’ll find a video with one of her most famous poems read by a young woman. Enjoy: http://www.talkingpeople.net/tp/literature/jordan/junejordan.html
