The beautiful cover art, "Shared Knowledge" by Charles Bibbs, frames the anthology These Black Bodies Are.... This collection provides snapshots of the human condition in melanated skin and kinky hair from established and emerging writers and artists in the Inland Empire and Los Angeles area, reaching throughout the diaspora. It is an exploration of eight movements: hopeful, mindful (mental health), mystical, enlightened (education), bodacious, bearing witness, eclectic, and transforming (transitioning). These Black Bodies Are... is a reminder that we can, at any stage and age, liberate and empower.
