for the love of black girls

Tatiana M.R. Johnson’s first collection of poems is a love letter to black girls everywhere. “for the love of black girls” makes visible the pain and magic that is growing up a black girl in America by recalling her own coming-of-age story and chanting that black women are present, lovable and anything but invisible.
