Inspirational, painful, and complex, "Me in America" is a collection of poetry that shines a scrutinizing light on the complex realities of a country divided. In three parts, Kelvin’s collection humanizes the often-generalized stories defining the Black experience. From a traumatic childhood to questioning how he fits in, Kelvin’s poems both personalizes and makes very real for readers the effects of racism and discrimination in America.
