Ebo Barton comes from salt— from the moment before worlds converge. In this world, we are still trying to articulate that mixed Black and Filipino, Transgender and Non-Binary, Queer, Artists and Educators not only matter but are precious. In another world, Barton is loved, safe, and valued. The only difference being that the latter is a path they must make themselves. Insubordinate is Barton's first collection of work. Through this collection, they discover themselves, acknowledge their history and navigate a world unready for their existence. Through these 14 poems, you can see the lens in which Barton sees the world and how the world reflects back to them. Insubordinate is a protest to the oppressor's story, what we know as "history" and Barton simply won't accept that as fact.

“Ebo Barton's work is never out of style, misshapen, or late but, always a necessary sacred text, spiritually nourishing for gritty-truth-seekers & always, always on time." -Anastacia Renee, Writer/Educator/Archivist
