New Works

For_the_Love_of_Black_Men_coverORDER NOW - New works by Award-Winning Poet Ayin Adams, For the Love of Black Men.

For the Love of Black Men is a triumph for Ayin Adams’ imaginative power – with poems reflecting the rich traditions and complexity of today’s black society. Her new book awakens us to a black man's world in today’s American Society with searing poems that stretch from the street to the healing power of family and love.

From the chilling immediacy of “I Can’t Breathe (for Eric Garner)” to the horrific truth of “Unarmed,” she tells apocalyptic moments in the Black community. But fear not, this poet, with Return Home and A special Feeling, also encompasses the love, compassion and humor that connects the black man to the black community and to the world.

Fortunately for all of us, her verses actually become a legitimate shelf reference of America’s shameful history of the slayings of unarmed black men. Reading her work is enough for me to urge you to share this book of poems with those you know and love.

Poetry reaching univeral experience is fundamental to understanding human life and Adams connects the individual and the larger society –her poetry is Self meeting Self.

The principles are: umoja, ujima, ujamaa, kujuchagulia, nia, kuumba, and imani. Dr. Ayin M. Adams has put together this delightfully creative and informative book to share the philosophical values, cultural poetry, recipes, and photographs of the unique beauty of the Hawaiian Islands and enhance the meaning, scope, depth, and intimate ritual of Kwanzaa."
