Afakasi Speaks

Author(s): Grace Teuila Evelyn Taylor

NZ Poetry

This first collection of poetry by award-winning Spoken Word artist, Grace Teuila Evelyn Taylor, marks her debut as a poet who can also move audiences with the written word. Afakasi Speaks explores the complexities of Afakasi identity, of those that, as Taylor puts it, "taste the bitter sweetness of the space between brown and white," identifying as Samoan and English. These brave poems give voice to the power of family and language even as they reveal painful colonial legacies.
