ABOUT THE BOOK:
Resurrecting the Bones is a book of poetry by Jacinta V. White, born out of her journey visiting African American churches & cemeteries in the rural South. Published by Press 53, the collection of 37 poems attempts to convey the impressions the poet received through her visits to churches & cemeteries in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Texas.

“Jacinta White’s extraordinary voice draws its energy from an underrepresented perspective of religion and the black female body politic. Her multi-layered poetics carry us into the depths of subtlety, power, and abundant compassion… grace inside the personal of spirituality. Resurrecting the Bones is a divining rod guiding us past shores where ancestral ghosts have forgotten their names but still manage to write themselves home over and over again in-between all the expressive lines in this collection.”
– Jaki Shelton Green, Poet Laureate of North Carolina
