In Urban Contemporary History Month: Poems, Scott Woods interrogates
identity and society, exposing the frequently imposed and false duality
of 21st century Black life by a world that prefers its art and people in
neat boxes. His poems navigate police abuse, idol worship, the
definition of Black culture, and the importance of the blues—chipping
away at our acceptance of American life as we know it. The collection
includes meditations on juke joint culture, art as a communal
projection, and a cento comprised of the first lines of Stephen King
stories. Scott Woods is a Columbus Foundation Spirit of Columbus Award
recipient and was named the first-ever “Face of Columbus” by Columbus
