From the Publishers page:
Cheryl R. Hopson’s poetry shows the influence of years of reading, living, thinking through and imagining what it means to be a girl and woman, a person of color, a Southerner, a feminist scholar of working-class origins, and a poet. The daughter of a mother who was and continues to be an enthusiastic and avid reader, Cheryl understood early on the beauty and significance of the written word. She began writing and reading poetry at twelve years old, after discovering the fiction of Maya Angelou and the poetry of Nikki Giovanni.
