SUBWOOFER makes audible the deep bass of history, for this is a book of vibrant, honest listening: to the voices of Nina Simone, James Baldwin, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Basquiat; to those without names; to the sadness of loss and the bitter silences within privilege and racism; to the luck of being alive. This book of witness, elegy, and renewal makes a noise that is joyful, heartbreaking, and unforgettable. This book will appeal to students of poetry, to teachers of literature and their students, to teachers and students of African American history, to music and blues lovers, and to anyone interested in new voices in poetry that explore the ways that race, privilege, history, and music comment on one another, and intertwine.
