Daily Sunshine is a collection of verse that opens the door between black and white as it articulates what it is like to be African American in America. This collection was written while Reginald Grant was a young impressionable student at the University of Oregon in the late 1970's- and early 1980's. It still represents the reality of life for an African American male here in America. The words continue to connect us to the reality of the weight on African Americans in our society. Though the topics of relationships, family, school, society, sports and self-realization we are moved. These poems reflect how much we are more alike than we are different as everyone searches for peace, family, opportunities and to be valued. The book contains poetry that will touch your spirit, mind and soul.
