In Looking For Myself, his debut collection of verse, talented young poet Kurt B. Boone speaks for a generation, telling tales of spirits lost and found and helping his peers find their own light. The essence of Boone's poetry speaks not only from experience but from a unique perspective: that of a young African-American male, from a heart and mind tired of the racism and hatred against his generation for their skin color, their age, their notions, and for the power - both good and bad - they so mightily wield.
