Heyyyyyyyyyy Henny, Happy Tuesday!! When I saw Finna being promoted a few months ago I knew that I had to have this book in my life. I pre-ordered this book so quickly and when I received it in the mail I instantly cracked it open. This poetry is strong, lyrical, and most importantly powerful and important. Nate Marshall puts everything on the page and portrays a beautiful image of the importance of Black Vernacular English. The language here is sublime which caused these chills to travel through my body. I absolutely loved this book so much. Here is an excerpt poem from Finna by Nate Marshall: Finna “so this one time I was finna say finna in a academic context & a voice in my head said shouldn’t you be worried about using a word that ain’t a word & I was like word.” Trust me when I say that y’all need this poetry book on your shelf! These poems need to be read. Have you read Finna? Come talk with me! 🤗💕
