Black Girl, Call Home, Jasmine Mans is doing much more than celebrating Black girlhood (though she is certainly doing that too). She is also considering what it means to be a Black mother raising a Black child; the poems in this collection at times frame this as an ethical issue. What is the moral designation assigned to bringing a child into a world that is fraught with systemic oppression? She is also considering our collective ancestors. This collection is ripe with topics for discussion.
