For Such A Time As This (Paperback)
For Such a Time as This is a powerful collection of poetry that focuses on social justice and awareness. With poems ranging from police brutality, slanted journalism, homelessness and feminism, just to name a few, Hannah Drake seeks to be a voice for those that have been silenced. For Such a Time as This was birthed due to injustice, too many lives taken, too many rest in peace shirts, too many mothers weeping, too many communities destroyed, and far too many hashtags. For every individual that has become a hashtag, a face on a t-shirt, a social media topic of debate, Hannah Drake pauses to say that she hears you and this collection of poetry seeks to be the shout for voices silenced too soon, for women that are still fighting for equality, the light that shines awareness on mass incarceration and a multitude of other topics that continue to be a stumbling block to equality to everyone. We are in this fight together. Justice for one is not enough. Justice for all is what is required. And perhaps you are reading this book today because you have been picked for such a time as this.
