This timely and impactful guide doesn't just explain why self-reflection, self-determination, and self-love this exuded on how poetry can be used as a tool to teach.

No Cappin' Don't Test Africa: A Worldwide Message offers relatable stories, insightful reflections, and a variety of practical tools and tactics that will help anyone learn to:

  • How to be honest with ourselves
  • How to conduct a self-check-in

"If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm," is an African proverb that embodies the central message of No Cappin' Don't Test Africa: A Worldwide Message. Currently, people of African descent have been facing systemic oppression at an all-time high, but the only difference that is going on today is that it is now being recorded. There has been an ongoing saturation of black death that marks the injustices of our people which is starting a new age revolution. People from around the world have supported the Black Lives Matters Movement for some of the most recently reported injustices that have made it to the media. In order to change the issues that are happening around us, it is imperative that we also take our internal struggles just as seriously.

As a spoken word artist, Lethal has performed on the east coast of North America. She has performed in a variety of venues from open mics, slam competitions, and other venues. Lethal writes from personal experience and does not allow her trauma to define who she is. She also has a strong sense of self and strives to pour that into her audience.

Lethal's authenticity sets her apart from other artists as she paves a new movement for poets to be recognized beyond performing in slam competitions.

No Cappin' Don't Test Africa: A Worldwide Message ($12.99, 61 pages, 5 x 8, paperback, ISBN: 978-1735178004) will be available in local neighborhoods and online booksellers or on
