From Nina Simone to DMX, the black music tradition is a driving force in Nabila Lovelace’s poetry. This tradition not only influences the subject matter of Lovelace’s work, but also the tone and delivery of her poetry. The title of her collection, Sons of Achilles, shows that Lovelace’s work goes beyond one music or one culture. Her poetry incorporates the black music tradition to show that black music is human music. Her poetry incorporates the black music tradition to show that the black experience is a human experience.
