From the New York Times Book Review ‘New and Notable’ section:
This vast anthology gathers voices both canonical and overlooked to build an implicit but unassailable case that Black poetry is central to American literature.
Join this librarian-led poetry discussion. This month we will read but a sampling of poems from Kevin Young’s widely acclaimed new anthology, African American Poetry: 250 Years of Struggle and Song.
Registrants will be sent an electronic handout of poems for this online meeting.
