The frustration, anger, and restlessness caused by African American oppression are exorcised in this moving collection of poetry. Speaking initially from the perspective of black struggle, these works evolve to invoke the common denominator of all humanity. A familiar voice laments the feelings of a shared past, including tributes to Paul Robeson, Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Muhammad Ali, as well as non-African American icons such as Che Guevara, ultimately offering a more thoughtful and transcendental vision of human suffering and injustice.
