'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:
- Give to our ‘My Name is My Own’ Kickstarter campaign before October 29th to receive donor rewards like poetry books and broadsides, and to learn more about these essential poets and their legacies.
- Or, simply make a gift on this page to help launch The Essential Ruth Stone, The Essential June Jordan, and our spring poetry books.
I am not wrong: Wrong is not my name
My name is my own my own my own
—June Jordan, from “Poem About My Rights”
