Capturing the experiences of urban public school children in Syracuse, NY, Soul Talk provides a powerful emotional and political statement about issues being faced by young adults in their public schools and neighborhoods. (Discount for Educational Purposes)

Soul Talk: Urban Youth Poetry is a landmark publication. We owe much to these young poets for allowing us into their lives, and to Luis J. Rodriguez, whose poetry got us here. Bravo.
