How to Say Babylon how to say babylon
by Safiya Sinclair

Available as: print book

Author Safiya Sinclair was raised in Jamaica by a violent volatile father and a subservient mother who followed a strict sect of Rastafari that saw the Western world to be a corrupt and forbidden influence.  Suffocated by her father’s rules and her mother’s voicelessness, Safiya’s secret access to books and poetry, become a lifeline to finding her voice and an escape.  This is not only a memoir but also a reckoning with patriarchy, colonialism and the silencing of women as a means of control.  It is a universally relatable story of a woman finding her power and a glimpse into rare world of Rastafari that many aren’t familiar with.
