Add Black to the Rainbow: Reflections on a Journey

25.00 BBD

This first volume of poems records the thoughts and reflections over a journey of some fifty years. The author considers this collection to be a subtle response to the developmental realities of half a century. He successfully weaves race, religion, romance, politics, and sport into the fabric of the 'Rainbow', noting subtly the absence of the colour black in the recognition and hierarchy of this multi-coloured world. Some of the poems offer an alternative or a 'solution' to the problems facing global development, others offer a challenge to the status quo, yet others merely comment and leave you to determine whether there is a real need to 'Add Black to the Rainbow'.
