Publisher Marketing: "In 68 poems, Kentucky writer Frank X. Walker expertly melds autobiography, political commentary, and literary allusions into a devastatingly beautiful journey through the real "Affrilachia"-- a word Walker created to render visible the lives of the African Americans who call the rural and Appalachian South home. Written with passion, clarity, and emotional honesty, the poems in Black Box illuminate profound experiences at the intersection of race, love, social justice, family, identity and place."
