"I am The Rage is a timely look at generations of trauma and inaction." -- Bustle

For fans of Amanda Gorman's The Hill We Climb and Morgan Parker's There are More Beautiful Things Than Beyonc , comes a diverse poetry collection like no other. From two Black women of two different generations, I am The Rage provides insights that no think piece on racism can; putting readers in the position of feeling, reflecting, and facing what it means to be Black in America.

Dr. Martina McGowan, a retired doctor and grandmother, uses powerful free verse poetry to express the range of emotions and thoughts she had following the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, and the subsequent Black Lives Matter protests, giving readers a glimpse into an experience that may or may not mirror their own.

Contributing her art, Diana Ejaita's work has been featured in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, The New York Times and The Economist. "The poetry is so intense, the book is so strong, I am very honored...every word was turning and touching my soul. Very emotional," said Ejaita in reaction to her poems being a part of this groundbreaking and educational collection.
