Claiming an Identity They Taught Me to Despise

(1980)
A collection of poems by

 
 
"By choosing to explore densities of color and sexuality with a language that is sweet and strong, Michelle Cliff reconstructs a black woman's journey toward self-definition with writing that is brilliant, intnsem and unavoidable in its honesty. Rich in imagery that evokes all of our struggles, her words sometimes speak from the edge of my dreams. This book is passage through a sisterhood of selves; as women of color having complementary histories, we are indebted to her." Audre Lorde
