“Hermine Pinson speaks and sings for herself and others.”

“Her poetry is visceral: ‘the blood of poetry’ and praise runs through Dolores is Blue/Dolorez is Blues. Like jazz, sorrow transforms itself into joy. She is bookwise, streetwise, cool metaphysical. Her poetry has a backbeat, something of the melody and phrasing of field hollers and church music: a deep, moral undersong. She sings unto others as she would have them sing unto her.”—Stanley Moss

HERMINE PINSON's poetry, along with short fiction and literary criticism, has appeared in numerous publications including Callaloo, African American Review, and Verse. In 2006, she collaborated with Yusef Komunyakaa and Estella Conwill Majozo on the record Changing the Changes, a fusion of jazz, blues, and spoken word poetry. She teaches African American literature at the College of William and Mary.
