Best Young Black Poets

Sale price Price $23.00 Regular price

While in his early twenties and a student at Lincoln University, Langston Hughes published his first book of poetry, The Weary Blues and penned his landmark essay, “The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain.” In it, he employed young black writers to themselves and their people and express their “individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame.”

Dorpie Books has curated through research and recommendations from prominent black poets and scholars an anthology of some of young black poets who do just that. This 120 page hardcover will contain a history and critique of the genre and feature some of the poets recognized as the best.
