    Paperback Description:

    The Black Arts Movement spanned less than two decades, but left an undeniable mark on American literature and Black America. Considered one of the single most controversial periods in the history of African-American literature, it inspired and reflected the political and social activism of the 1960s and 1970s and challenged societal ideals, producing the powerful works of poets Nikki Giovanni, Haki Madhubuti, Sonia Sanchez, Quincey Troup and the Last Poets. In this volume the dynamic Black Arts Movement is explored through selections of poetry from the most significant poets of the period, complemented by biographies that discuss the scope and content of each writer’s work, as well as his or her historical significance and impact to the literary world. This is the second volume in the Poetry from the Masters series.
