Bushra Rehman’s mother says Bushra was born in an ambulance flying through the streets of Brooklyn. Her father is not so sure, but it would explain a few things. Bushra was a vagabond poet who traveled for years with nothing more than a greyhound ticket and a bookbag full of poems. Her work has been featured on BBC Radio 4, KPFA, the New York Times, India Currents, Crab Orchard Review, Sepia Mutiny, Color Lines, Mizna, and in numerous anthologies. Bushra is co-editor of Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism. Her novella “Bhangra Blowout” is forthcoming through Upset Press. Her site: www.bushrarehman.com.
