Darrell's Photo

Darrell Collins has been writing contemporary African American poetry for about 30 years. His work is based on the experiences, relationships, history, culture, and plight of African Americans from the late 20th century into the early 21st. He was born in Los Angeles, spent 13 years living in New Orleans (Pre-Katrina), and now resides in the Washington, D.C. area. He says, "The purpose behind this work is to pass along to our young brothers and sisters the actual facts of what they already think they know (the Each 1 Teach 1 approach)."
