As the daughter of a white man and black woman who were illegally married in the '60s, Trethewey uses poetry as a tool to vividly describe the implications of race throughout history while discovering what it means for her, personally. Her most recent work, "Thrall', is a powerful juxtaposition of historical analysis and introspection. See Snellville Patch for more on this story.
