Description

A new collection that is a testament to the power of poetry as a vehicle for introspection, social commentary, and artistic expression. 

With its evocative verses and resonant themes, American Equations in Black Classical Music invites readers on a transformative journey through the melodic landscapes of jazz, the analytical realms of economics, the intricacies of American life. While making room for the speculative, to allow one’s imagination to begin to continue to draw from past lessons/innovations to hack future portals for these traditions to breathe new lives. 

A poet known for her work as MoorMother, Ayewa poems hold that same power. In the poetic tradition of jazz & protest poetry of the 60’s and 70’s, Ayewa continues to question systems and make connections between the historical and the present. In the tradition of her artistic group Black Quantum Futurism, Ayewa’s poems speak to the communal survival mechanisms and temporal technologies that Black musicians and artistic communities have developed, uncovered, reconfigured to combat temporal oppression and reclaim our time. 

American Equations is an intricate interplay of history, society, and the human condition illuminates the stark realities and poignant struggles of the past and present. From the vibrant jazz culture to the pressing economic disparities, from racial equations to the melancholic strains of blues, and from the enduring legacy of black classical music to the profound impact of time and speculation, these poems delve deep into the interconnections and entanglements that shape our world.
