This heartfelt book is imbued with the emotional toil of the omnipresent racial discrimination in our society. Clive lets his emotions flow freely, brilliantly using analogies and constantly asking questions, emphatically making the invisible visible. This wonderful set of poems speaks for the masses to the masses.
Since this outpouring of expression, Clive have been reflecting on how to tie passion to purpose and as a result, he have decided to set up a scholarship at Acadia University (Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada) focused on increasing access to post secondary education for Black students.
Additionally, he would like to provide funding to support other community initiatives (Free For All Foundation, Brampton, Ontario, Canada (www.ffaf.ca) and Frontlines, Toronto, Ontario, Canada (www.frontlines.to)) where we are able to see the direct impact of contributions made.
