His Own Where

by June Jordan, introduced by Sapphire - £10.99  Feminist Press (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781558616585 | ISBN 10: 1558616586

When His Own Where was first published in 1971, it gained both praise and notoriety. A finalist for the National Book Award, June Jordanís first young adult novel was considered controversial for being written entirely in Black English. Would children be encouraged to shirk the mastery of standard English, or would they, as Jordan proposed, become more engaged in a story about urban survival and the power of love, written as people actually speak?
 
This Contemporary Classic is introduced by bestselling author Sapphire, who writes about what is real and necessary about June Jordan, and this rediscovered gem.
