All I See is Color Not Enough Light by Will Porter
Willie Earl Porter, Jr.–better known as Will Porter–has constructed one of his finest portraits to date. A chronological portrait of himself and his experiences commissioned by society’s dire need for honest introspection and self-defining text. Especially from a perspective that has been largely shushed, unappreciated and disregarded. That of the ‘black’ man. He tunnels twenty years into his rich past– affording the reader a panoramic position of all the ills, insight and thrills that shaped his psyche– only to return you back to his present-day, unscathed. Each detail shared that contributes to his molted memories is proof that shedding layers makes you light in more ways than one.
