Renaissance Woman/Race Woman

Toni Yancey's poetry is intimate and autobiographical in nature, a mosaic of self discovery, social commentary and health advocacy, dealing with relationships, responsibility, parenting, sports, and racism. By turns sweet, anguished, soul bearing and hard-hitting—reminiscent of Gil Scott-Heron, Renaissance Woman/Race Woman finds Toni, a.k.a. Doc2Folk, a little further along life's road, sharing lessons for living with compassion, honesty, charity, clarity and truth. This collection of moving and often powerful pieces provides a window through which to examine where we've been, where we are and where we can be.
