About this item
The poems in award-winning poet Michael Fraser's second collection explore and display the lives of historically significant people of African descent from both the Americas and Africa.To Greet Yourself Arriving highlights eminent and well-known historical figures such as Barack Obama, Harriet Tubman, and Oscar Peterson, and also illuminates figures such as George E. Carter, the first Canadian-born Black judge in Canada and Carolina Maria Jesus, an impoverished woman from a Sao Paolo favela, whose diary, Child of the Dark, became the best-selling book in Brazilian publishing history. The collection’s poems sizzle, pulse, and shine under Fraser’s skilled attention to his poetic craft, offering a powerful experience for readers of all backgrounds.
