Mr. Dinkins [a.k.a. NSAA, pronounced en-sah-ah] is a Sacramento style poet with a conscience. His poems attack injustice and inhumanity. [NSAA] goes beyond the African American experience to address all issues related to social justice, but also writes of simpler issues related to his personal life — growing up in a world of larger than life characters that he so adeptly and richly describes in his poetry. ~ Frank Dixon Graham
