Coffee & Conversation with DaMaris Hill

A revelatory work in the tradition of Claudia Rankine’s Citizen, DaMaris Hill’s searing and powerful narrative-in-verse bears witness to American women of color burdened by incarceration. Combining a broad scope with pressing urgency, A Bound Woman is a Dangerous Thing puts contemporary issues of racial injustice, police brutality, and mass incarceration in direct conversation with the historical legacy of incarcerated black women that precedes it. As both an Air Force vet and the mother of a Black child, DaMaris Hill is distinctly positioned to navigate the tensions between the American political state and its personal implications for her subjects, her son, and herself.
