Malik "Word Bird" Canty presents his fourth collection of straight talk, heartfelt realism with volume 1 of this Afro-Ancestral series. Tears For My Ancestors is a compilation of works with a poetic flavor that strongly communicates authentic stories for people of African descent.
Word Bird feels that because so much of Black History has been hidden or distorted, it is important that these stories be told whole. Thus he challenges readers with this question: "Who, among you, has the courage to teach the children and others the TRUTH?"
Tears For My Ancestors serves as a stimulating resource for enlightening all age and ethnic groups about the unadulterated truth and untold stories regarding the rich heritage and enslavement of a resilient people.
