The Exodus: A Collection of Poetry is a unique and special look into the soul of author Leonard J. Warrick. His poems were written in the winter of 2004-2005, when the author was 38 years old, and encompass the social, economical and spiritual epitaphs of that time. It takes place in wake of the presidential election in November 2004, when there was a strong mood of pessimism overriding the spirit of Black America. His poems “A Forgotten People” and “An Election Day Aftermath” reveal hidden truths the media never reported.

The transcending quality in the evolution of American history and culture has brought an awakening to the author about his true identity. The political, personal and historical persons that contributed in influencing the author as well as American society are included.

Leonard J. Warrick was shaped by his legal guardian’s mother, who was the descendant of an Indian chief father and a freed slave mother. Others who impacted his life were his first grade teacher, as well as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., President Bill Clinton, Malcolm X, singer Billie Holiday and Professor W.E.B DuBois.

The Exodus is a creative effort aimed at instilling a concept of self-love, respect and forgiveness within American Black people – who are by the deliberate account of lost history – the true Jews!
