Ashlee Haze: Land of the Living

International Podcast Poetry Write Up

‘But look how she dances when she thinks no one is watching. 
Look at the balm oozing from her bones 
she is my pomegranate promise in this land of the living’ -Ashlee Haze

A song to Black Lives, it lifts the voices of our mothers. In this episode of the podcast, Letlhogonolo is in communion with Ashlee discussing topics around grief, the predicament of Black mother and womanhood to the power of representation, feminism, Beyoncé and Missy Elliot. This episode is filled with authenticity and vulnerability complemented by readings from Land of the Living.
