Wow, so beautifully written, educational, empowering.
purchased for a college class. Very stirring prose. Didn't sell this one back after the course. Keeping.
The title of this extended poem, ?Migritude? combines the experience of migrants with the concept of ?negritude? and ?attitude?. It was created for performance as a one-woman show and has been performed in Berkeley, California, as well as Nairobi, Kenya, among other locations. It is simply incomparable.
Shailja Patel hooked me the first time I heard her 3 years ago (listening online in Vietnam) in a kpfa interview. She was reading an excerpt,? How Ambi became Paisley?. I sought her out, ?friended? her on Facebook and was fortunate to meet her in the flesh last year on the island of Lamu, where we became friends. I recently heard her reading another excerpt, ?The Making? in another radio interview. I?d found both poems edifying and deeply moving ? but they were but a taster of the power contained in the complete work. I found ?Migritude? such compelling reading that I couldn?t stop until I?d finished it in the wee hours of the morning.
As a white person, growing up in racist Britain during the influx of South Asian migrants, I empathized strongly with her rage at her treatment in my country. I knew nothing of our colonialist history in India and Africa (euphemistically referred to as the ?Commonwealth?) and I doubt that many others did or do. She articulates so eloquently my own fury and grief at the treatment of women at the hands of men, and of empire. The atrocities of the British colonialists I only became aware of in Kenya in the last couple of years ? but not from Kenyans ? they have also been kept in the dark about it. All that horrendous, hidden history! Shailja not only reveals, but uses the ancient tradition of cursing with her poetry.
Fearlessly outspoken against racism, against injustice, against governments, against empire, she is a wrathful Dakini for our times. ?Migritude? is at once political and deeply personal. Every word is resonant with meaning. Reading it was quite cathartic. It often brought me to tears, and it sometimes made me laugh. It made me want to buy copies for my friends. It made me want to see that ?iconic Migritude photo?. And most of all, I want to see her perform it live. In the meantime, I'm waiting for the DVD...

Migritude is exceptionally well designed and recently received a graphic design award. It is a book you want to buy in it's physical form to truly experience a fresh literary treat. Shailja Patel's gem is a delight to hold; enjoy the strong wood cut graphics and luxuriate in her flowery barreling journey through a tumultuous ever transitioning life. I really do not have adequate language to describe how much I love this book and think you should buy it. Really, it is the best piece I have read and felt in a long, long time. Just buy it. For you. And your friends.
