Because students at the University of Michigan complained that anthologies used in introductory poetry courses contained no Black poets, Broadside Press was asked to compile a small collection. This booklet is a sampling of Black American poets including those of the Harlem Renaissance like Claude McKay and Jean Toomer, mature and established poets like Robert Hayden and Gwendolyn Brooks, and outstanding younger poets like Don L. Lee, Etheridge Knoght, and LeRoi Jones.
