LET REASON ROLL: Race, Religion & Reflections

In his poetry debut, ELMER BEARD, the Octo Griot, offers a poignant look at life and death through the eyes of an African-American octogenarian.

LET REASON ROLL takes readers on a poetic journey that begins in a prayer and ends in a eulogy, while visiting rural life and confronting racial issues along the way. You can laugh or cry, but don’t forget to shout!
