We Know This Place
When Sunni Patterson asserts that We Know This Place, she means every word. Should we break it down further? WE, the poet's collective, live in the sovereign wisdom of KNOWing THIS PLACE: post-Katrina New Orleans, where the poet's activism converges with her joyous celebration and impelling interrogations of class, gender, race, and place. In this collection, Sunni Patterson renews the timeless work of poetry, summoning all who are ready to listen up.
