SAY HER NAME Poems to Empower

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Channie Waites

Children Ages 12+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Channie Waites's expressive narration further heightens the impact of Zetta Elliott's paean to Black girls and women. By turns gentle, melodious, animated, and dramatic, Waites matches her pitch and pacing to the themes in Elliott's poetry--microaggressions (like hair touching), brutality, enslavement, and resistance. In a reflection of the title, some poems take a hard look at the painful circumstances of women who were killed by racial violence. Also included are recognition of trans women, the need for self-care, and poems that have influenced Elliot's own writing. The importance of this brief audiobook cannot be overestimated. It offers an exceptional performance paired with soaring poetic contemplations on racism and how to fight against it. S.G.
