JUSTICE. PEACE. POETRY. Black women face challenges because of the intersectionality of gender and race, but yet many of them are able to achieve academic success and career progression. Marcia Morgan captures the emotional turmoil, as well as what it ‘feels’ like to be an intersectional subject in two white male dominated institutions: Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, UK and Higher Education. She uses the rich texture of words to capture the readers imagination, by igniting an emotional connection as well as a logical interpretation of the experience shared through the poems, interview extracts and interpretative narrative. This book encourages you to think differently and identify strategies to overcome the anxiety and pain associated to the feelings of invisibility, exclusion and isolation.
