Publisher Description

James Weldon Johnson states in The Book of American Negro Poetry that the Negro poet's goal should be to create poems that have "a form that is freer and larger than dialect, but which will still hold the racial flavor; a form expressing the imagery, the idioms, the peculiar turns of thought, and the distinctive humor and pathos, too, of the Negro, but which will also be capable of voicing the deepest and highest emotions, and aspirations, and allow of the widest range of subjects and widest scope of treatment." It is with this statement in mind that readers should view the carefully chosen poets represented in Johnson's collection.
