Mules Fight Back by Kristin Richardson Jordan is a poetic response to the famous Zora Neale Hurston reference that the Black Woman is the “mule of the world”. Raising questions like, “What happens after breathing becomes a privilege?” and making statements like, “America is the abusive mother I never should have had” this collection of poems and stories depicts Kristin’s own personal and political journeys (which are still in progress) and covers a variety of important topics including but not limited to the activism of occupy and black lives matter movements, sexuality, family heritage, nationality, body image, history and current events all through the lens of Black womanhood.
