'My Name Is My Own': Celebrating June Jordan & Ruth Stone

A Kickstarter Campaign & Fund Drive

You are invited to help launch two bold, politically relevant, emotionally resonant, electrifying poetry anthologies: The Essential June Jordan, forthcoming in spring 2021, and The Essential Ruth Stone, hot off the presses this month.

If you have never read these poets, you are in for a seismic heart-shift. If you have long loved and been impacted by their work, welcome home.

Two Ways to Give:

  • Or, simply make a gift on this page to help launch The Essential Ruth Stone, The Essential June Jordan, and our spring poetry books.

Thank you!

I am not wrong: Wrong is not my name
My name is my own my own my own
