As the title indicates, TRUTHFEASTING serves a veritable banquet of literary treats, philosophical insights, and soulful observations. Ja Jahannes is clearly not a poet inclined to biting his tongue when it comes to sensitive issues, no matter if in regard to race, religion, or anything else. Whether examining the nature of living life in the political spotlight, as he does in “The Death of Jesse Jackson,” or musing on the notion that “Poets are Precious People,” his lyrical vision is framed in the unique music of his own illuminated soul.

An extraordinary bonus in this volume is the informative essay, “Africa-America: Perspectives from Brazil and the USA, which was presented as a speech on the 100th Anniversary of the Abolition of Slavery in Brazil.

In addition to being the author of TRUTHFEASTING, Jahannes is well-known as a playwright, minister, educator, and creator of the critically acclaimed “Montage for Martin,” a celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
