Inappropriate Medley has a soul that emerges from a place of pain, loss, and survival. It is a feminist political project in its first phase. It relies on feminist creatives and activists, Liberian, and people globally, to challenge the status quo through consciousness building. This collection of poetry is vital to exploring the concepts of love, grief, pleasure, and change. The normalization of trends focused on violating people’s rights and rendering them taboo has had a pronounced impact on our generation. The patriarchal mandate to control the bodies of womxn must be interrogated and stopped. The book’s objective is to start a meaningful conversation. It brings a non-negotiable message on the in-depth excavation of life’s realities, exposing systems that steal the joy of womxn and why redemption is critical.

I have had numerous conversations since my book was launched on December 19, 2020. It has been a fantastic experience to witness the shared solidarity across the world. It has also been a haunting experience seeing the connections we hold across war and current checkpoints. It is essential to use these conversations as learning and teaching moments. We must keep the momentum and bring to fore the patriarchal system that morphs daily, stealing womxn joy and right to reach their full potential.

We will not forget the 250,000 people killed at checkpoints and other places in Liberia and those who survived this period.
