What My Hand Say, on one hand is a bold unapologetic tribute of black people living their lives in South Carolina. While on other hand, it is a palpable reckoning with the state’s weighted
history. In this book, Glenis Redmond’s poems span from the 1800s to the present. The impact of going from poem to poem purposely causes emotional whiplash, as if to say welcome to the
volatile place, in which “I/we have always had to live.”
