Publisher Summary

African-American poetry and art take wing and soar in this collection compiled by Belinda Rochelle. With work that spans the nineteenth century through the present, this stunning collection pairs twenty poems by distinguished African-American poets with twenty works of art by acclaimed African-American artists. Renowned poets and artists such as Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, Rita Dove, Countee Cullen, Jacob Lawrence, and Paul Lawrence Dunbar powerfully explore themes of slavery, racism, and black pride, among many others. Named as one of the New York Public Library’s “100 Titles for Reading and Sharing,” this important collection was described as “a stirring book that will take [readers] up close and also extend their view of themselves” in a starred review by Booklist.
