Book Review – “Different Sides of the Same Coin”

You can listen to the review of this wonderful book on the Prolific Pulse Poetry Podcast

AND it is also viewable of YouTube. I am amazed with this book, the more I hear the poems, the more I read, the more I am emotionally charged with an awareness. Chyrel J. Jackson spoke at the recent Coffee Table Talk about social justice. Her message was spot on and prolific. I highly recommend this book. Two sisters, two different styles of writing, two passionate poets, who bring it more than 100% They are a formidable force and I suggest that you pay attention to them. These ladies are meant to be heard. Check out this YouTube for my review and there’s an Amazon link should you decide it is a must have in your library.
