Da Black Book of Linguistic Liberation is McInnis' fourth collection of poetry. In this collection, McInnis uses his poetry to teach and celebrate African American history, culture, and beauty. Accordingly, he also challenges blacks and whites who continue to create policy or behavior that he sees as detrimental to African Americans. Yet, with all his socio-political fire, McInnis' poems are still driven by his wit and imagery, allowing him to paint pictures that are bold, vivid, and beautiful. This work is a seamless balance of art and protest where readers are encouraged (demanded) to understand that life can be beautiful if we seek to become better than we are.
