Edited by the late distinguished poet Michael S. Harper, this classic collection includes a new foreword by award-winning poet Cornelius Eady and the original introduction by Michael S. Harper, as well as introductions to Southern Road by James Weldon Johnson and Sterling Stuckey. The result is a tour de force by one of the most distinctive poets in American letters.
About the Author
MICHAEL S. HARPER (1938–2016) was a celebrated poet and professor. The first poet laureate of Rhode Island, he taught at Brown University from 1970 to 2013.
CORNELIUS EADY is the author of numerous books of poetry, including Hardheaded Weather and The Gathering of My Name. He is the cofounder of Cave Canem.
“Sterling Brown’s poetry should be in print in perpetuity. Its meanings, legends, melodies, and mythologies could only have been shaped by a Black American throat. Sterling Brown's poems have the power of revival music, the declaration of great oratory, and the sonorous crooning of a young man in love.” —Maya Angelou
