Abstract:

Furious Flower III: Seeding the Future of African American Poetry (2015) offers the unprecedented opportunity to watch thirty-two of today's leading African American poets reading from their work and discussing the critical issues shaping this vibrant poetic tradition. Its four video volumes compile close to five hours of highlights from the landmark national poetry summit sponsored once a decade by the Furious Flower Poetry Center at James Madison University, the country's only academic venue devoted to the study of African American poetry. Together with Furious Flower I (1998) and II (2005) - now newly available - this third title constitutes a video anthology of some of the most exciting poetry and perceptive critical insights of the past decade. Any teacher, poet, student or reader who has followed the current flowering of African American verse would want to have attended this seminal event - and now on video they can. This volume recalls the key role played by poets as architects of the Black Arts Movement, their contribution to the African American Freedom Struggle and adaptation to the political changes of the past half-century. It features a panel: "S.O.S Calling All Black People: Honoring the Memory of Amiri Baraka." Readings by the ten poets below reveal how African American poetry acts both as an historical witness and advocate for racial justice. John Bracey, Jr., Tony Medina, Haki Madhubuti, Quincy Troupe, Ishmael Reed, Evie Shockley, Mariahadessa EkereTallie, Camille Dungy, Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez.
