Wrong is Not My Name: A Tribute to Survival Via June Jordan

Wrong is Not My Name Cover

This interactive anthology was created by women of color in UBUNTU, a Durham, North Carolina based, women of color led coalition committed to creating a world free from sexual violence and full of sustaining transformative love. Miraculously this volume was compiled in 48 hours out of poems, essays and messages that we felt compelled to write and share with each other in the aftermath of a high profile sexual assault case in our community.

In addition to poems, an essay and a flyer, this book also includes an annotated reading list, guiding the reader through the work of June Jordan, which survives through all of us, as well as exercises designed to help you re(name) yourself. We hope that this anthology will inspire people in other locations to use poetry, publication and community as resources through which to respond to violence and affirm each other.

All donations will support the Teal Ribbon Fund, a fund to help survivors with advanced counseling, bill payment due to loss of employment, transportation, or
civil legal representation. The Teal Ribbon Fund was established by
NCCASA (North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault) and is available to survivors throughout North Carolina.

Need: Poetry as Activism

This is an interactive poetry publication inspired by Audre Lorde’s resistance poem “Need: A Chorale for Black Woman Voices”. Lorde wrote this poem after 12 black women were murdered within 4 months in Boston. Along with the publication you’ll get a toolkit for a set of workshops that will empower you to create productive dialogue about important issues that your community is silent about.
