Sheeba's Old View from the Window

What happened? What's happening. Sheeba's view from the window. Mine, on occasion, from wherever. Yours, from ... where.......?

Name:

Samiya Bashir’s books of poetry, Field Theories (Spring 2017), Gospel, andWhere the Apple Falls, and anthologies, including Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social & Political Black Literature & Art, exist. Sometimes she makes poems of dirt. Sometimes zeros and ones. Sometimes variously rendered text. Sometimes light. She lives in Portland, Ore, with a magic cat who shares her obsessions with trees and blackbirds and occasionally crashes her classes and poetry salons at Reed College.

Me & Kylar -- NBJC Board Retreat

Because my life is personnified by the random interruption, I'll interrupt this love fest of Cave Canem with the love fest of last weekend ... here is me and Kylar Broaddus, my co-board-member of the National Black Justice Coalition having a moment of love at our semi-annual Board Retreat and Strategic Planning meeting.

Not a member of the National Black Justice Coalition? Get with the program. Get engaged. Get active.
