Abstract

The Year We Can't Walk is a poetry collection concerned with the issues of Black womanhood, silence, oppression, grief, insecurity, mental health and traumatic history. This work uses narrative complexity and abstraction to build a temporal space that is boundless in its subject matter. With a great variation of style and voice, this work attempts to mimic the chaos and trauma related to Black femininity in America.
