The Complete Works of Pat Parker
by Pat Parker




Overview -
Poetry. Drama. California Interest. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. Parker stayed woke to black suffering, violence against black bodies--especially those of black women--to the suffering engendered by multiple, egregious oppressions. With THE COMPLETE WORKS OF PAT PARKER, we are allowed an opportunity to historicize Pat Parker's significance to black women's literary traditions, lesbian erotics, to black queer struggles and black feminism, and to global social justice movements. She was in her time. Now, with this important text, she will be in all time to come. --Alexis De Veaux

As the Black Lives Matter movement calls attention to the grave risks Black people have always faced and as poets and artists wrestle with the question of how to marry the political and the personal in their work, we have never needed Pat Parker's work more. It is absolutely immediate, searing, salving, saving, and necessary. --Kazim Ali

The poetry of Pat Parker reaches out to us anew and shakes our consciousness--fiercely. --Cheryl Clarke
