The
Body Family
is a song of memory and revelation; it is the sublime
unearthing of what has been hidden by silence and erasure.
This lyrical
and imagistic poetry collection tells the story of a family's journey to
flee the murderous reign of Uganda's Idi Amin only to land in a racist
American landscape. Wabuke excavates personal and ancestral history to
bring these poems to wrenching life, articulating what it means to be a
Black girl becoming a Black woman while navigating a diaspora haunted by
British colonization and American enslavement.
