Finally: The 3P Remix!!

Yes yes ya'll: It's finally here!!!(please don't ask about the delays - it's here!)

Passion, Pride, and Politickin': Homegrown Poetry and Essays
by Ms. Jamal Sharif

“With the Gold Pen awarded to her by the Black Writer’s Alliance for this outstanding poetry collection, Ms. Sharif packs the original vision of the hip-hop generation, the urgent calling of previous and current revolutions, our youth’s unfortunate despondency, and a concerned openness for evolution…”
~ Chezon Jackson, Rolling Out Urbanstyle Magazine

“With poetic styles which vary from haiku to street-wise dramatic monologue, using the conventions of “standard” English as well as the defiance of “Ebonics” – and what comes through, no matter what the voice, no matter what the subject; is Ms. Sharif’s clear moral stance: Her verse and prose sing always of the deep, innocent, compelling, human need to do the right thing..and have it be done unto her.” ~Joyce A. Barnes, playwright, author of “Amistad” and “Promise Me the Moon”

“Take time to travel with this intelligent and gracious sister. Passion, Pride and Politickin': Homegrown Poetry and Essays is a must read for poetry lovers and truth seekers alike.”
~ Cheryl Faye, author of “Be Careful What You Wish For

“The book is packed with powerful expressions of life from a personal, as well as from a world perspective…if you want a mindful of energy and inspiring thoughtful prose, Passion, Pride, and Politickin’ is for you.”
~ Zamounde Allie, author of “As The World Burns”

“Ms. Sharif has established herself as heir apparent to the royal line of African-American female writers…love, trust, racism, and urban culture are some of the topics she addresses, with beguiling prose and in-your-face realism….”
~ Memphis Vaughan Jr., author, editor of

2001 National Gold Pen Award Winner
for Best Poetry Collection

The book is fabulous!! I loved the original, but the remix is hotter than I imagined!!! The surprise short story at the end came with it on a rather timely and relevant theme, and I was really pleased to see that too. Great job on all of it!

Too excited beyond words. Now I can replace the book that I have on my my space page with the new version, so people can know what time it is.

I'm serious. Too excited beyond words.

I believe I speak for everyone that we are very happy, and very proud of you. This is no small feat.

Once again, too excited beyond words.

Memo to Oprah: You won't have to worry about THIS book shattering into "A Million Little Pieces". This is the real deal!!

Supa...I already own your book and I am sad that I missed the chance to have it autographed. I purchased mine on Amazon a while back. You are a talented lady, my sister on the West Coast.

We are all so proud of you. Best friend owns a bookstore in Brooklyn....I am going to forward the book title to her and get her to order it.
