Samenvatting

This riveting debut from poet Faylita Hicks is a reclamation of power for black women and nonbinary people whose bodies have become the very weapons used against them. HoodWitch tells the story of a young person who discovers that they are something that can & will survive / a whole century of hunt. Through a series of poems based on childhood photographs, Hicks invokes the spirits of mothers and daughters, sex workers and widows, to conjure an alternative to their own early deaths and the deaths of those whom they have already lost. In this collection about resilience, Hicks speaks about giving her child up for adoption, mourning the death of her fiance, and embracing the nonbinary femme body-persevering in the face of medical malpractice, domestic abuse, and police violence. The poems find people transformed, remade out of smoke & iron into cyborgs and wolves, machines and witches-beings capable of seeking justice in a world that refuses them the option. Exploring the intersections of Christianity, modern mysticism, and Afrofuturism in a sometimes urban, sometimes natural setting, Hicks finds a place where everyone everywhere is hands in the air, where you know they gonna push & pull it together. / Just like they learned to. It is a place of natural magick-where someone like Hicks can have more than one name: where they can be both dead and alive, both a mortal and a god.
