My name is Dimitry Frederique, CEO and founder of Poetic Imagery in Motion, a subsidiary of Frederique Media Productions and Frederique Capital. I have been writing poetry since I was in high school. This work represents my first volume of published poems. While in English class, I fell in love with poetry and was inspired by the likes of The Scarlet Letter, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and Romeo & Juliet. This was the first time that I was introduced to the concept of romance, honor, and chivalry. They would become the driving force behind my writings. My style of writing is based on the following genres: love/romance, spiritual, and spoken words. I tend not to write anything else outside of those three genres.

A provocative meditation on race, Claudia Rankine's long-awaited follow up to her groundbreaking book Don't Let Me Be Lonely: An American Lyric.
Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society.
