Silent Screams
Nubia Assata

Silent Screams is a radical insight to the trials and tribulations of young people, especially those intersecting ethnic minority groups. Positioned from an introspective standpoint, this anthology is able to open doors that would otherwise remain unchallenged.

An honest take on the battle with mental health, politics, and black family dynamics, likens the poet to an incredibly mature author. Unapologetic whilst also careful, powerful whilst also soft, Nubia leans on her own experiences to draw parallels between herself and her history. To ultimately look forward to the future proposing the question of where do we go next?
