Some Are Drowning - Shepherd, Reginald

This first collection of poems enacts the struggle of a young black gay man in his search for identity. Many voices haunt these poems: black and white, male and female, the oppressor s voice as well as the oppressed. The poet s aim, finally, is to rescue some portion of the drowned and the drowning."
