Mother to Son
Dr. Latorial Faison
Dr. Latorial Faison’s Mother to Son is a march on truth and justice that does so with poetic protest and a profound storytelling that lyrically speaks to and about the racial, social, economic, and political issues at hand. Mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters will find the boldness and passion with which Faison speaks in this collection liberating. Flying on the wings and words of those who came before her, Faison calls readers to action, to remembrance, and to hope, faith, and love with this collection. It’s filled with the richness of an African American history rooted in tragedy and triumph. This book is a freedom song pointing readers toward a new hope, a new life, a new kind of liberation.
