Some of Us Did Not Die : New and Selected Essays Paperback / softback


"She remains a thinker and activist who'insists upon complexity.' "Reamy Jansen, San Francisco Chronicle * Some of Us Did Not Die brings together a rich sampling of the late poet June Jordan's prose writings.

The essays in this collection, which include her last writings and span the length of her extraordinary career, reveal Jordan as an incisive analyst of the personal and public costs of remaining committed to the ideal and practice of democracy.

Willing to venture into the most painful contradictions of American culture and politics, Jordan comes back with lyrical honesty, wit, and wide-ranging intelligence in these accounts of her reckoning with life as a teacher, poet, activist, and citizen.
