My book tackles well-established issues and perspectives in our inner cities and countries while offering morsels of guiding light and hope to individuals in unfamiliar and possibly tragic situations and contexts.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (PRWEB) July 11, 2017
NK Bwana’s decades of personal experience, specific research and education that focuses on Afro-Ethnic studies as well as his being a keen observer of Black Culture, Hip Hop and spoken word poetry in the streets of L.A. led him to write “Divine Style Vs. Demonic Wordplay” (published by Trafford Publishing in August of 2013).
“Divine style Vs. Demonic Wordplay” yields provocative compelling socio-political commentary in the rich tradition of beat poets, jazz poets and spoken word performing artists. Primed to impress varied global audiences, this poetic work infuses infectious Southern California charm and Congolese swagger.
“My book tackles well-established issues and perspectives in our inner cities and countries while offering morsels of guiding light and hope to individuals in unfamiliar and possibly tragic situations and contexts,” Bwana says. “It continues to push the envelope in an intense and emotionally charged arena (race, race-relations, American democracy in relation to African Americans, Black Lives Matter, etc.) while balancing and often juxtaposing drama, humor and tragedy in a way that people in the streets will validate as authentic.”
Bwana hopes his writings will give readers a mirror to validate and express their experiences. He believes his work is a potential conversation-starter to critical, deeper, meaningful conversations and serves as a reminder of his resilience, sustenance, reflection and unyielding strength.
