About

The BreakBeat Poets Vol. 2: Black Girl Magic continues and deepens the work of the first anthology in this series, The BreakBeat Poets: New American Poetry in the Age of Hip-Hop, by focusing on some of the most exciting Black women writing today. This anthology breaks up the myth of hip-hop as a boys’ club, and asserts the truth that the cypher is a feminine form. Mahogany L. Browne, Idrissa Simmonds, Jamila Woods, and special guests will perform.
