Author of several books of poetry, including Time Slips Right Before the Eyes, Local History, ARCADE and Piece Logic, she is also co-editor of Letters to the Future: Radical Writing by Black Women with Dawn Lundy Martin. She is the Parsons Family University Professor of Creative Writing at Long Island University, Brooklyn campus.
