Poetry. African American Studies. The author of ten books of poetry, monologues, and short stores, Sekou is a St. Martin writer who has recited his poetry throughout the Carribean and the world. His works are commonly required as university reading, taught in high school, and dramatized on stage and in carnival presentations, and he has been a leading advocate for St. Martin independence. "Sekou has a vast and critical command of Caribbean history and culture, and this helps to define his work...He can sit comfortably with Aime Cesaire"--Howard A. Fergus, in Salted Tongues: Modern Literature in St. Martin.
