About the Book

I present to you my eighteenth book entitled Red Coconut: Bridging the Racial Divide. Bridging the racial divide is what I do every day, and my collection of poems and essays this year speaks precisely of this. A man who picked up a dying fish as he and his friend walked the seashore was asked, “Why do you do that? You cannot save all these dying fishes!” He replied, “But it made a world of difference to this one!” One heart at a time, one community a time, we can make a difference.
