Civil Wars: Observations from the Front Lines of America
by June Jordan
In Civil Wars, June Jordan’s battleground is the intersection of private and public reality, which she explores through a blending of personal reflection and political analysis. From journal entries on the line between poetry and politics and a discussion of language and power in “White” versus “Black” English to First Amendment issues, children’s rights, Black studies, American violence, and sexuality, Jordan documents the very personal ways in which she meshes with the social issues of modern-day life in this country.
Author, poet, journalist, teacher, and activist June Jordan identified as bisexual.
