Samenvatting

Conversion Theory is the first-ever published poetry collection of Darius Simpson, award-winning spoken word artist, writer, and social justice activist. This book is a reflection of how Darius has come to experience the United States and its relation to direct action, culture, community, and creative work of African Americans. Since 2014, specifically the murder of Mike Brown and the rebellion that followed, there had been emphasis in media coverage on police brutality and the string of non-indictments which were never far behind. Conversion Theory highlights many of these injustices while intertwining simple truths of what it has always meant to be black in the U.S. With the use of personal stories, persona poems, and historical facts, Darius brings the ugly truths to light while encouraging us all to continue in our pursuit of “justice for all”. In some imaginative and some literal ways each poem stands as a demand in exchange for the peace which is so often stipulated on black brown voices of dissent.
