Commissioned by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publishers (U.S) to design the interior pages for NPR correspondent and New York Times bestselling author, Kwame Alexander’s latest offering.
“LIGHT FOR THE WORLD TO SEE: A Thousand Words on Race and Hope; is a powerful and provocative collection of poems that cut to the heart of the entrenched racism and oppression in America and eloquently explores ongoing events. A book in the tradition of James Baldwin’s “A Report from Occupied Territory,” Light for the World to See is a rap session on race. A lyrical response to the struggles of Black lives in our world . . . to America’s crisis of conscience . . . to the centuries of loss, endless resilience, and unstoppable hope. Includes an introduction by the author and a bold, graphically designed interior.”
