by Charlotte Hill O'Neal

It’s not everyday that we are blessed with a poetry compilation that encapsulates 13 years of work from an accomplished African activist elder. As the title suggests, Homage publicly gives honor and shows respect and admiration for a host of souls who have impacted the author Charlotte Hill O’Neal or Mama C as she is affectionately known by many. In this collection of poems and writings, Hill O’Neal pays tribute to her parents, aunties, iconic historic figures such as Lil Bobby Hutton and others. She also gives insight into her world travels, such as her time spent in China, and writes about her life in Tanzania as a U.S. transplant. O’Neal sprinkles words from other languages throughout this book including Yoruba, KiSwahili and more which adds to the journey.

"Homage is an epic poetic journey that honors our ancestors and “charges our batteries” as we continue in the fight for true liberation."
