BLACK ROSES Odes Celebrating Powerful Black Women

by | Read by Harold Green III

Poetry & Drama • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

This exceptional listening experience features tributes to 40 incredible Black women. Poet Harold Green's narration matches the passion, eloquence, and breadth of knowledge that he infuses into each of his powerful odes. Green shares his own motivation and influences, and also emphasizes the importance of the affirmation, appreciation, and emotional equity given to the wide range of Black women he features. Some are already household names, and others may be less well known. Each selection is part tribute and part invitation from Green to learn more about the women featured. Particularly moving are the odes to writer Raquel Willis, civil rights activist Michelle Alexander, athlete Allyson Felix, former Congresswoman and writer Stacey Abrams, and photographer Eunique Jones Gibson. A quick, engaging, and inspiring listen. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
