In Sugar, Cape and Port, Dominican poet Juan Matos offers a deep look at a rarely examined aspect of the Afro-Caribbean community in the Dominican Republic. This set of epic poems explores the forces that clash and coexist in the sugar cane community the author called home. These profound, lyrical, and beautifully crafted verses are a tribute to the hard work, love, and hope of those Dominicans and Haitians who share that milieu without shying away from denouncing the segregation, racism and class discrimination that permeate their daily lives. Matos poetic voice speaks to the heart about the important theme of identity, and the need to rescue from oblivion the historic memory of places and people that seem condemned to oblivion after a century of being the backbone of a nation.
