Morgan Parker, who was recognized by the Los Angeles Times as a "Writer to Watch," and Publisher's Weekly included her book in its Best Poetry of 2019 list. Parker's poetry collection considers the everyday experience of black womanhood, while pushing past a curtain-like trope, often a plot-device in Hollywood films, where black characters are limited.
