rain taxi is proud to present the chapbook launch of
Can't Stop Won't Stop
Poems in the Wake of Racial Injustice
Rain Taxi is proud to publish a chapbook anthology of new poems by Black writers in the Twin Cities, poems written in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. Can’t Stop Won’t Stop, edited by poet Mary Moore Easter, features work by Philip S. Bryant, Keno Evol, Sherrie Fernandez-Williams, Bernard James, Douglas Kearney, Michael Kleber-Diggs, Sagirah Shahid, and Maya Washington, along with Mary Moore Easter herself. The publication of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop was supported by BookMobile, a Twin Cities company that brings craftsmanship to short-run book printing. The chapbook can be ordered on the Festival Merch page.
For the launch of this important publication, we present a stunning video of the poets reading their work in South Minneapolis. Created by the multimedia production company iDream.tv, this lovingly filmed tribute showcases the rage, grief, and sheer power of poetry speaking back to injustice.
