About the Book and Author
In Urban Contemporary History Month: Poems, Scott Woods interrogates identity and society, exposing the frequently imposed and false duality of 21st century Black life by a world that prefers its art and people in neat boxes. His poems navigate police abuse, idol worship, the definition of Black culture, and the importance of the blues—chipping away at our acceptance of American life as we know it. The collection includes meditations on juke joint culture, art as a communal projection, and a cento comprised of the first lines of Stephen King stories. Scott Woods is a Columbus Foundation Spirit of Columbus Award recipient and was named the first-ever “Face of Columbus” by Columbus Alive.
