Poetry. African American Studies. These poems are sound prayers...melodic expressions of the spirit of the village and the marketplace. They speak to primal innocence, in reverent love, with revolutionary zeal...these poems heal and satisfy...sweetly like Mango Jam -- Luisah Teish. Poetry that sings and illuminates with passion and courage...It's real life stuff -- Tillie Olsen.
