"Brilliant . . . its beauty, power, flow and deep truth knocked me. . . . I got chills."-Mumia Abu Jamal Taking Brooklyn Bridge is a poem about the struggle for liberty and the search for true democracy and redemption. Addressed to Walt Whitman and composed in the cadence and style of "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," the poem tells the story of the personal and political awakening experienced while participating in a march across the Brooklyn Bridge.
