Woodland Pattern Book Center is pleased to celebrate the release of the poetry anthology, Cries for Justice: Poems for Dontre Hamilton. Published by Art Night Books in collaboration with the Coalition for Justice, and edited by Angie Trudell Vasquez & Margaret Rozga, Cries for Justice brings together work by nearly twenty Wisconsin poets responding to the tragic death of Dontre Hamilton, and speaking to the larger culture of state-sanctioned violence against people of color in the United States. A timely and vital collection of poems, which, to borrow the words of Nate Hamilton, “breathe[s] for those who have lost their breath.”

 

Co-Editor Margaret Rozga will introduce contributing readers for the event, including Freesia McKee, Franklin K. R. Cline, Alida Cardós Whaley, and Mary Devitt, along with Managing Editor Angie Trudell Vasquez and the Hamilton family.

 

All proceeds from the sale of Cries for Justice go to the Hamilton family in honor of their beloved son, Dontre Hamilton.
