Description - Anarcha Speaks: A History in Poems by Dominique Christina

In this provocative collection by award-winning poet and artist Dominique Christina, the historical life of Anarcha is personally reenvisioned. Anarcha was an enslaved Black woman who endured experimentation and torture at the hands of Dr. Marion Sims, more commonly known as the father of modern gynecology. Christina enables Anarcha to tell her story without being relegated to the margins of history, as a footnote to Dr. Sims's life. These poems are a reckoning, a resurrection, and a proper way to remember Anarcha ... and grieve her.

Buy Anarcha Speaks: A History in Poems by Dominique Christina from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
