    Poetry. African American Studies. Jayne Cortez is the author of eleven books of poetry and performer of her poems with music on nine recordings. Her voice is celebrated for its political, surrealistic, dynamic innovations in lyricism, and visceral sound.

No ravine is too perilous, no abyss too threatening for Jayne Cortez"—Maya Angelou. "If you haven’t read Jayne Cortez, you’re missing some of the best that life has to offer. A compellingly original voice of fire and freedom"—Franklin Rosemont. "Jayne Cortez’s poems are filled with images that most of us are afraid to see"—Walter Mosley.
