A History of Afro-American Poetry

To write a history of Black verse in America which will combine a chronological approach with a study of the poets and their work as interpreters of discernible cultural and political ages. PI will pay as much attention to techniques as to themes, and will place recent verse in the context of the black American literary traditions.
