Resistencia, Love, Healing. A book of poetry by Tolbert Small, M.D.


“The legendary physician, poet, social activist, and humanist” – these words have been used to describe Tolbert Small. He has worked as the leading physician for the Oakland-based Black Panther Party, setting up their national Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation and the George Jackson Free Clinic.

Here, Bert brings his experience as a doctor, activist, and writer together in a collection of unforgettable, thought-provoking poems that he has written across his long and expansive career.
