Poetry. African American Studies. Music. Disability Studies. BLACK KRIPPLE DELIVERS POETRY & LYRICS is straight up an activist/love book of original poems and song lyrics that have been written and collected for almost two decades. Many poems in this book were first published in 1999 in a chapbook by Poor Magazine's Poor Press. Most of the poems and lyrics touch on issues that Black disabled people deal with but only get a little media attention. In this book you will find true stories of discrimination, cases of police brutality, love songs for the Black disabled community and for the author's family.
