Keshia 'K.Boogie' Shantae
from the SouthWest Tropics of the Gulf Coast,
from the land of cotton and black gold,
from the streets and hallways of Houston, TX
Buffalo & Bayou and Temple Of She Bookclub presents,
Zora 42 is the first collection of poetry and prose by Zora Neele Hurston devotee, Keshia Shantae. Chosen to continue in the literary great's masterful grasp of the Black American Experience and folk vernacular, Keshia Shantae's style of writing is charming and yet, clear in its aim to communicate her message.
Zora 42 is reminiscent of the womanist writings of the Harlem Renaissance and The Black Arts Movement, with contemporary cadences and Gen-X values added for good measure.
