"The world so fine
And Eden not so far away . . .
- from As Darkness Reigns by Oracle

"Black is Beautiful", in response to the ever-present violence in the United States against our brothers and sisters, RESIST is a brilliant write from Kimberlynne Darby Newton and Subterranean Blue Poetry. Kimberlynne Darby Newton, a Poet and retired history professor from Alabama is famous for being a consummate Poet, writing the poem, "Song of the South." She is one of the highlights of post-modern American Poetry.

RESIST, a Chapbook of the cause for love and freedom, is at once empowering, an inspiration and a truthtelling. As if the Black Poet goddess preaching good gospel, this poetry raises the Spirit to heaven, in positive affirmations. A heart weave, a love song, a Neo-classical war chant for love. Calling on Artemis, the goddess of love and Erzulie, she of water, she of life in incantations for peace, love and protection. Newton calls her people "Children of the Sun" and the poetry spills forth like fresh, clean water for Black suffrage and freedom. This writer can remember being at a friend's house when a teenager and listening to Malcolm X recordings on vinyl. This poetry has the essence of that freedom call.

From "Where I Lived":

"Let pride run you,
sweet made baby,
shout and slander
them hush-a-byes.
Got people depending on you,
and people that will never.
Sing your freedom, girl!
I did like they told me to.
Loving, laughing, liking the me,
they believed in.
Where I lived."

A Beat poetry progression in the New Age Renaissance Republique. Perfect bound Chapbook candy, a celebration of life and love in the face of violence, RESIST by Kimberlynne Darby Newton. A Subterranean Blue Poetry Imprint.
