Summary
A collection of poetry by black authors ranging from the religious and moral verse of Phillis Wheatley Peters (ca. 1753-1784) to the 20th century sensibilities of Langston Hughes and Countee Cullen. Works by George Moses Horton, Frances Wellen Watkins Harper, Alberry Alston Whitman, Henrietta Cordelia Ray, Daniel Webster Davis, Mary Weston Fordham, James Weldon Johnson, Paul Laurence Dunbar and many others, written on such topics as bondage and freedom, hatred and discrimination, racial identity and racial solidarity, and the outpouring of African-American creativity known as the "Harlem Renaissance."
