Black Girl Magic Book Launch!

The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 2: Black Girl Magic continues and deepens the work of the first anthology in this series, The BreakBeat Poets: New American Poetry in the Age of Hip-Hop, by focusing on some of the most exciting Black women writing today. This anthology breaks up the myth of hip-hop as a boys’

club, and asserts the truth that the cypher is a feminine form.

Editors Mahogany L. Browne, Idrissa Simmonds, Jamila Woods, and special guests will perform.

Discounted copies of the book will be available for purchase from Haymarket Books, and signing by the poets.
