Canela con Miel y Clavos (Cinnamon with Honey and Nails) explores the complexities of growing up as a Black male of Caribbean and Hispanic heritage in the urban America of the 1960s.
This collection shares Dr. Robert Woodbine's personal poignant memories and offers insghts into the caustic effects of racism both past and present. A product of the Black Arts Movement, he examines this racial and cultural history and, with measured acerbic lyricism, expresses elements of these struggles through the lens of his own expereinces.
Where these issues remain unresolved or efforts seem futile, Canela con Miel y Clavos gently coaxes the hopeful towards the universal power of spiritual transcendence.
