Soldier: A Poet's Childhood by June Jordan

This memoir is an exploration of the late June Jordan's childhood in Brooklyn, which was published two years before her death in 2002. Jordan was a celebrated poet, essayist, political activist, and teacher. Much different from a traditional autobiography told in a linear format, Jordan provides a collection of memories and events that often break into poems.
