Thank you John Furman for your company and for the conversation about radical humanitarianism the other night (how appropriate that we are celebrating MLK day today). Your interest in my book Water & Light: Choose Love Now reminds me to love myself and others and to not be afraid to share my story. Thank you also for reminding me that there are readers of all races and genders out there who can see the need for a spiritual revolution in this world where both patriarchy and white supremacy are addressed and the world is safe for young Black girls and EVERYONE else. Thank you also for reminding me to have faith in my work and for reminding me that the world still needs poets. Hope to see you in Utica sometime soon.” – Kristin Richardson Jordan

In honor of the last day of Kwanzaa, Imani (which means faith), we would like to announce the addition of word art and quotes to the Pens Up Press store. Happy Imani and happy New Year’s Day!
In honor of New Year’s Eve day of Kuumba (creativity- the 6th day of Kwanzaa) we wanted to announce that Pens Up Press will begin production of adinkra keychains featuring symbols that have their root in west African spirituality. The keychains will display the symbol on one side and an explanation of the spiritual meaning of that symbol on the other, adorned with cord ribbon cowrie shells and beads.
Happy Kwanzaa! at the Kwanzaa market place now all set up with Yvette Heyliger. Will be here with Pens Up Press Books and signed copies of my book Mules Fight Back at the 35th Kwanzaa at the Museum of Natural History until 5:30pm.
