Poetry. African American Studies. Music. Disability Studies. BLACK KRIPPLE DELIVERS POETRY & LYRICS is straight up an activist/love book of original poems and song lyrics that have been written and collected for almost two decades. Many poems in this book were first published in 1999 in a chapbook by Poor Magazine’s Poor Press. Most of the poems and lyrics touch on issues that Black disabled people deal with but only get a little media attention. In this book you will find true stories of discrimination, cases of police brutality, love songs for the Black disabled community and for the author’s family.
“In the tradition of History’s word warriors, Leroy Moore pens full frontal confrontations that blast away the last nasty vestiges of Faith-based America’s biases against the poor, the disarranged, and the different.”—Wanda Coleman
