    In Casual Conversation, Renia White shares what it means to be a Black woman in America. Divided in three parts, this poetry collection, the first published by the author, explores feelings and ideas, images and sounds. I am not particularly a poetry reader, but I enjoyed discovering Renia White’s poetry. These poems are what the title of the collection is, casual conversations. She speaks of everything and nothing at the same time. That guy she crossed in the street, that perfume she smelt, tha In Casual Conversation, Renia White shares what it means to be a Black woman in America.

She speaks of everything and nothing at the same time. That guy she crossed in the street, that perfume she smelt, that thing she saw on television. Rhymes and breaks cross, and answer each other, guiding the reader into a melodic walk of words.

    I enjoyed reading these poems and especially how the author conveyed language using spacing, indentation, and paragraph structures. This was something that felt unique to me. However, I really wish the book included more information about the author before diving into the poems. I didn't feel as attached to the story as I hoped.

    These poems are deceptive. They may appear, at first, to be casual, yet there is nothing casual about the captured insights and feelings. They catch out the reader with a deft twist, and an invitation to rethink perceptions.
