Publisher Marketing: A reprint of the intersectional black feminist classic by the late poet and performer Akilah Oliver.

In her original author's note to the 1999 edition, Akilah Oliver writes, "What I am trying to do in these poems is investigate the non-linear synapses between desire, memory, blackness (as both a personal identity and a non-essentialist historical notion), sexuality and language." the she said dialogues: flesh memory proves to be not only still timely twenty years later, but essential reading for understanding intersectional politics and poetics in our current moment.
