Catch the Fire!!!

Catch the Fire!!!

Derrick I.M. Gilbert Tony Medina
4.4/5 (13 ratings)
African-American poetry is an ever-growing and ever-changing art form... in coffee houses and night clubs... from the blues and be-bop, to rap and hip-hop. "Catch the Fire!!!" is more than a poetry anthology. It is a cultural event: the indroduction of a new generation of African-American poets by an established generation, and a celebration of contemporary African-American poetry. Through the themes of family, the city, revolution, the body, and the soul, June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Abiodun Oyewole , Ntozake Shange, and Sonia Sanchez discuss their own generation of poets and their thoughts about the emerging poets whose poems they are presenting here.
