Shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize 2023 Rising of the Black Sheep is a testament of resilience. As a Queer Black woman speaking on personal loss, queer identity, institutional racism but also hope and joy, achievement, activism and a future that is unapologetically Black. In her debut poetry collection Livia Kojo Alour touchingly evokes her childhood memories then takes us onto her journey of self-discovery, overcoming stereotypes and finally moving into her power. This poetry collection is an extension of her solo show ​Black Sheep.

Rising of the Black Sheep
Must read for poetry lovers!
This collection pushes boundaries and really got me. Deeply personal but still talks to all people. Brave, vulnerable and well written. Highly recommended!
